Navigate can't find file from full local file path

I sometimes need to pull up a file from a path (say from Git Extensions) but if I paste the full path to the file in Navigate in PHPStorm, it can't find it. I have to chop it down to the relative project path.

What's going on? I thought PHPStorm could find a file in its project in the same exact location as the file in the file system that the project's in.

Hi there,

It works -- just re-checked in few projects in 9.0.2 on Windows 7.

Maybe some symlinks (?).. or space in file name or path (e.g. space as first character makes it to fail)... not sure.
