VSS and UNC Paths

Does the VSS integration work with UNC paths?  I got the wsf file to work with a UNC (share) path to our VSS database.  It pulls in the journal file correctly and puts the entry in the CVS table.

The URL for CheckIns displays correctly, too.  But, when I click on the link, I get this error:

File:  /fogbugz/showVSSdiff.asp 
Line:  196 
Error:  The SourceSafe database path Admin does not exist. Please select another database.

Is this error caused by the URLEncoding of the backslashes in the UNC path in the QueryString, or is this the result of some mis-configuration?  Any help is most appreciated.

Looks like its a limitation in the Visual Source Safe COM object...  It is failing on the Open command.
