ui: don't treat path sub-options as paths

ui.fixconfig() treats all options as paths and performs some
normalization during config load time. As we're about to introduce
sub-options, this could potentially interfere with the definition
of sub-options. So, exclude sub-options from normalization.

It's worth noting that this section of fixconfig() could likely
be moved to the new "paths" API someday. Ignore it for now.
