Description

I installed a vanilla version of trunk (r9124 at the time) and tried to import a wxr wordpress backup file (http://wpcandy.com/articles/easier-theme-development-with-the-sample-post-collection.html)
and after I assign the post authors, I get this error message:

Warning: gzopen(C:\wamp\www\wordpress-trunk/wp-content/uploads/C:wampwwwwordpress-trunk/
wp-content/uploads/2008/10/postsxml1.import) [function.gzopen]: failed to open stream:
Invalid argument in C:\wamp\www\wordpress-trunk\wp-admin\import\wordpress.php on line 72

All done. Have fun!

I tried importing the same file into 2.6 and worked as it should.
I'm testing this on a localhost enviroment with WAMP2 installed.

The underlying cause is the same, so let's track this with #7904.
