There are two structures being allocated.  The one you provided the
code for is small - an integer plus a pointer.  The other one, which
has enough room for any path is the big one.  It holds the path in
UTF8 (as passed from the image) and in the platform's native format,
which for Windows is 32K 16 bit words.
