also com1.* com2.*, and I think com3.*, com4.*

Absolutely brain-dead of Windows to do that of course, given that the
actual COM ports don't have anything after the port #, so there is no
name conflict at all except for the fact that the check appears to be
bogus. I guess the MS-DOS core that the Windows UI runs on still
thinks of file names and extensions as totally independent things. ;-)
