Maybe peek into File::Spec::Win32 and take another look at perlport.

Perl should take / as the separator for anything internal (e.g. not 
arguments to exec/system commands.)

  perl -e "print qq{hello\n} if -f q{//a/b/c}"

also, q{\\} eq q{\} here.  Maybe \\\\ is all you need.

Chicken farmer's observation:  Clunk is the past tense of cluck.
