It does, but not in this case, since here StringSplit looks at strings 
without knowing they happen to be pathnames. The trick is to use 
$PathnameSeparator, which I think is there to make things like that work 
regardless of the underlying OS.

actually that is what I did. On the other hand the Mathematica code 
snipplet is a nice way to present the information in an OS independent 
way, well almost independent in this case :-)
