System.FilePath.Windows.combine does not really check isAbsolute

"Combine two paths, if the second path isAbsolute, then it returns the second.¨
But, the implementation of combine checks if the first character of a path is a path separator, which on Windows is not the same as checking if isAbsolute.
This can have counterintuitive results. For example:
import System.FilePath.Windows prop_windows_is_sane :: Bool prop_windows_is_sane = isAbsolute p || ("C:\\STUFF" </> p /= p) where p = "\\foo\\bar"
