Sorry, fixed the test, it shoud raise an exception on Windows, but the
latest test should not.

Bug #8034: File.expand_path('something', '~') do not include home path
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8034#change-37560

Author: rap-kasta (Pavel Manylov)

Category: platform/windows
Target version: 
ruby -v: 1.9.3p362


=begin
Next code works correctly only on ruby <= 1.9.3p362.
Tested on Windows XP, Windows 2008 with ruby 1.9.3p194 (works properly), ruby 1.9.3p362 (bug), ruby 2.0.0p0 (bug).

(({File.expand_path('something', '~') #=> "C:/path/to/current/dir/~/something"}))
                    
However, next code works as it should in all tested rubies:

(({File.expand_path '~' # => "C:/Documents and Settings/Jack"
Dir.home # => "C:/Documents and Settings/Jack"}))
=end
