A few quick tests on W2K SP4:

Rename "filename.ext" to "filename.ext." => the added period at
the end is dropped. The same goes for added space.

Rename "filename" to "filename." => dito.

So you are right, Ryan. In this context Wikimedia understands
filename as one thing, with or without extension (and including the
whole path, too?).
