I'm pretty sure this is the same as bug 4897 - and I agree that it's  
a serious problem. Modern OSes can deal with all sorts of file names,  
but as things stand, certain files just do not exist as far as  
revolution is concerned. I was very disappointed that this didn't get  
fixed in 2.9 - but then it didn't get many votes, I guess. (I must  
admit, I forgot to vote for it, as I'd had a correspondence with  
support about it...)
