Currently file_check_location is always returning false when passed a
file as the $source path.  If a directory is passed in $soruce
file_check_location works.  I've tracked this down to realpath
returning an empty string when passed a relative path which points to a
file.  This probably goes unnoticed if you are using the file.api's to
construct relative paths to the druapl file directory since
check_location failing just causes the durpal file directory to get
added which is what you wanted in the first place.
Replacing this line
$source = realpath(dirname($source));
with this
$source = realpath(dirname($source));
fixes it on my windows box using PHP 4.3.8.
I don't have things set up to do patches on my windows boxes here at
work yet.  I'll submit a formal patch tonight.

Dag nabit.
$source = realpath($source);
$source = realpath(dirname($source));

The sooner there are patches, the better it is...
I tested this approach on my server and it works.

This also fixed my file upload problems with some nonstandard paths
under Linux/apache, php 4.3.4 drupal 4.5.2. maybe we should remove
mention of windows 2000?
