From :help 'directory':
- For Unix and Win32, if a directory ends in two path separators "//" or
"\\", the swap file name will be built from the complete path to the
file with all path separators substituted to percent '%' signs. This
will ensure file name uniqueness in the preserve directory.
E.g. I use:
" (some stuff to create ~/.vim-tmp if it doesn't exist)
