Unable to run batch script with root working directory

      Description

      If you try to run a batch script while in a root directory (e.g. c:\), it will fail. It looks like BatchController tries to make a temporary directory that's a sibling of the working directory, but c:\ has no parent directory. I did this in a pipeline script, I don't know if it's possible in a freestyle job (possibly if the workspace were set to c:\).

      Jenkinsfile
      node 'windows', {
      	dir 'c:\\', {
      		bat 'echo test'
      	}
      }
