Ah, yes. The inability to create an FSSpec for a file that's not there 
was really irritating me. I'm glad to hear it's considered a bug.

On a side note, does anyone know if a FSSpec created with a 
slash-delimited path as above would work if you passed it to an 
application which normally thinks about colon-delimited paths (eg, a 
Carbon app)?
