When executing a script from a UNC path, e.g. //myhost/exports/, 
r"\\myhost\exports" gets prepended to sys.path.  But it doesn't work.  
This means that in, "import b" will fail even though is 
present in the same directory.

The workaround is to manually prepend a backslass to the UNC path in 

Note the related defect:
This intdoruces two functions for testing UNC paths, but it appears 
that these functions are nowhere used!
