I may have missed a case that's letting a backslash through,
but I don't think so.  The main problem was that os.path.normpath()
converts / to \ on windows as well as doing the .. replacement.

So I essentially wrapped any uses with util.pconvert().

There were some other uses of os.sep which is clearly wrong
when the filenames are in hg canonical form (forward slashes).

I've not changed the uses of normpath which fixes the .. etc. up,
but there may obviously be other cases where normpath is needed
(even on unix).

I'm fallable like everyone else, so I may have made a mistake,
but things are certainly a lot better on Windows.
