      Description

      I had configured my default.ini with:

      [couchdb]
      database_dir=C:/erl5.6.5/usr/couch_data
      view_index_dir=C:/erl5.6.5/usr/couch_data

      Couch would start and futon would let me create a DB named 'test'. However, requesting _all_dbs resulted in:

      ["c/test"]

      Note the leading 'c/'. Requesting this database name obviously failed. If I reconfigured couch to remove the 'C:' from those settings, or even changed it to a lowercase 'c:', I got the expected:

      ["test"]

      I'm not sure if this is a real bug or simply a documentation issue? Either way, its worth recording here for now.
