The joinDrive function currently produces paths such as "C:File" when
calling "C:" </> "File". This is apparently handled in a special case:
> | otherwise = case a of
> [a1,':'] | isLetter a1 -> a ++ b
> _ -> a ++ [pathSeparator] ++ b
This seems wrong, as far as I know "C:File" is not a valid path. What is
the reason for this special case?
In particular this problem results in cabal wanting to install packages
to "E:Haskell" on my computer (unless I pass a --prefix flag).
