I'm currently trying to get a successful test suite run for curl compiled with MSYS GCC, which has more Unix-like behavior compared to MinGW.
(Or, to be exact, I'm trying to be able to add autotools builds to AppVeyor with only what is preinstalled.)

Virtually all file:// tests are failing. They use paths like

Note the double slash after the host name. This works fine on Linux, but doesn't on MSYS.
Is this format on purpose? Is it defined to work and an MSYS bug or something we should fix in the tests?
