Stomping the Windows File Bug

This bug workaround identifies Windows operating systems and adds an identifier to the absolute root directory path to avert file problems.
 
File root;
String tmp;

tmp  = System.getProperty("user.dir");
root = new File(tmp);

while((tmp = root.getParent()) != null)
  root = new File(tmp);

// Do this to work around a Win95 bug
if(System.getProperty("os.name").toLowerCase().startsWith("win"))
  root = new File(root.getAbsolutePath() + ".");
