No, there isn't a switch or configuration option to handle it. There
are just too many filesystem dependent special cases that we don't
bother trying to handle them. The same thing problem also occurs if you
try to use a filename with a : in it. Works everywhere but windows...
Or if you have filenames that differ only in case (breaks on Mac OS X,
probably windows).
