ZipArchive::addFile does not work as expected when using windows directory 
separators (/).

Backslashes in string $filename are not converted into folders.

Test script:
$zip = new ZipArchive();

if ($zip->open() === true) {

	// gives a file named "dir/somefile.txt"

	// works properly

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
