Bug #15633: Pathological slowdown in File.expand_path on UNC paths on Windows
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15633

* Author: djberg96 (Daniel Berger)

----------------------------------------
For a while now, including Ruby 2.5, calling File.expand_path on an absolute UNC path seems to be strangely slow. I've put together some benchmarks here:

```
require 'benchmark'

MAX = 200000

Benchmark.bm(30) do |x|
  x.report("expand_path('foo/bar')") do
    str = "foo/bar"
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('C:/foo/bar')") do
    str = "C:/foo/bar"
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('//foo/bar')") do
    str = "//foo/bar"
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('foo//bar///')") do
    str = "foo//bar///"
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('~')") do
    str = "~"
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('')") do
    str = ""
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path(str) }
  end

  x.report("expand_path('', '~')") do
    MAX.times{ File.expand_path('', '~') }
  end
end
```
What I see is that most of these take only a second or two, while the UNC path takes 30+ seconds.
