If I just write something there, the old symbol is overwritten by the new one, but at the end after pressing enter it looks like you never entered anything after pressing backspace. For example:

>   2) Somehow I noticed that I may use the paths without the drive letter, e.g. just \<dir1>\<dir2>. It is legal to do it in Windows, but thus you can't change to a directory located on a different drive. For example cd \temp\forge will change to c:\temp\forge if you are currently in c:. So I tried cd \temp\forge, but the result was the same [exception].
>   3) If I am in the root directory (c:\) and I run cd temp\forge, I don't get exception, but ***ERROR*** tempforge\: No such file or directory. The interesting thing is that I ran that command by pressing tab, i.e. counting on the command completion of the shell, which obviously works fine.

> If you wish, I may add these observations as JIRA items, probably as children to this one: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/FORGE-1387. Bear in mind that all the reported features work in Forge 1 even on Windows ;)
> We can discuss these in today's meeting.
