Windows has quite a few reserved names for files/directories. Is that
happening here? The list is:

"Do not use the following reserved device names for the name of a file:

CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8,
COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9

Also avoid these names followed immediately by an extension; for
example, NUL.txt is not recommended."
