Normalize command line paths with windows drive letters #16745

Fixes #16740

In #16497, I generalized the behavior of atom --wait flag so that it will wait for a specific file path to close, rather than waiting for an entire window to close. Obviously, this new approach relies on file paths being represented consistently. In particular, if I open a file called C:/my/repo/.git/COMMIT_EDITMSG (forward slashes) the --wait session will not be terminated when I close a file called C:\my\repo\.git\COMMIT_EDITMSG (backslashes).

Previously, file paths passed as command line arguments were not normalized if they had the possibility of being URLs. This prevented windows paths with drive letters from being normalized. Now, we normalize any file path that exists on disk.
