Note that the strings on the RHS of these translations appear to be
HFS-style physical pathnames.  I'm kind of amazed that you get an
answer at all; somewhere down the line, something should either
complain that "Users:" is an undefined logical host, or that it
can't make sense out of a pathname string with that many colons
in it.

Perhaps you mean that PATHNAME-HOST returns a different answer ?
