This return value needs to be checked more carefully.

If the final path is longer than the buffer, then GetFinalPathNameByHandleW will return the actual length needed, which will convince this if statement that the call succeeded when it didn't, and then we'll process the uninitialized buffer.

How can the final path require a buffer longer than MAX_PATH? Two ways:

  1. The function always returns the \\?\ prefix, so a path that (with it's terminating L'\0') is exactly MAX_PATH will require MAX_PATH+4 when the prefix is added.
  1. MAX_PATH applies to most Windows APIs, but not to the actual filesystem. It's possible to have a final path that's longer than MAX_PATH (especially since it's using the \\?\ prefix). If we don't think it's worth handling those, fine, but we'd need to detect that case so that we can return an error. (A common way this happens is when the user uses subst to replace a long prefix with a fictitious drive letter. This is, in fact, how we get certain LLDB source paths under the MAX_PATH limit on some of the Windows build bots.)

Thanks, good catch. Will update with a stack buffer that should fit all practical cases (MAX_PATH+10) and fall back on dynamic allocation if that wasn't big enough.

Check the return value of GetFinalPathNameFromHandleW if it overflowed the buffer size and handle it appropriately.
