Complex pattern rules broken in win32-make (MINGW).

Hello people.
There seams to be a problem with make on windows concerning pattern rules.
For all versions of make (including current), the following is odd:

This rule works fine:

%.o: %.c

This rule breaks down:

obj\%.o: src\%.c

The same rule works on linux and cygwin (but of course here i use "/" instead of "\".
My guess is that it is the backslash in the rule which causes the breakdown.
This should however be handled correctly on windows... no ?
I have noticed other posts on other list which could indicate that i am not the only one seing this.
Anywone else who can confirm this, or shed some light on it?
