Water runs over the drain paths surrounding the sunroof and then leaks
inside.  I've found it dripping from the cabin roof around the sunroof
opening and also running down the inside of the C-pillar trim and behind
the rear seatback next to the door and into the footwell.  I suppose it
also could run down the inside of the B-pillar trim too.  Paths probably
depend upon how level the ground is or isn't where the car's parked.
