#160 Windows: error on opening var directory

The var directory is not created correctly for beta3
and beta4. Beta2 seems to be fine, but I don't know
why. The suspected reason is that the directory
creation code does not handle backslashes as directory
delimiters. Only Windows XP seems to be affected.

Possible workaround: make sure the directory the start
menu entry "User data directory" points to exists and
contains a var subdirectory writable by you.

    Several people with difficulties reported that the latest
    test build worked for them. Fixed for what comes after
    beta4.

    The problem was a hand crafted string dublication with one
    byte too little allocated instead of a plain strdup.
