This turned out to be a problem with Ink (well NSDocument based apps) using a file URL, and the NSURL code in base not dealing specially with windows paths.

If you created a URL of the form file://localhost/c:\...  then [NSURL-path] was returning /c:\... which is obviously not the right value on windows.

I changed NSURL so that, if on windows, the result of -path looks like a windows drive specifier preceeded by a slash, it returns the path without the leading slash.
This fixes the problem in Ink.app on my system.

I get a similar error.

[New thread 3188.0x990]
warning: 2009-05-16 00:07:13.376 Ink[3188] File NSData.m: 1411. In -[NSData writ
eToFile:options:error:] Open (/G:/qqq.rtfa00292) failed - La sintassi del nome d
el file, della directory o del volume Þ incorretta.

I guess "/G:/" is wrong: it should be either /g/ or G:\

In the latest release (base 0.19.1, gui 0.17.0), Ink cannot save files on Windows.  I get a blank Alert panel and the warning: "In -[NSData writeToFile:options:error:] Open (/H:/Source/test3.rtfa01496) failed - ...". See attached screen shot.
