I'm porting applications for Windows (using X11 and KDE) and one often
recognized problem is that application using
the content of the DISPLAY environment variable to generate filenames
directly. Under Windows character ':' and some other aren't allowed for
filenames, so this applications will fail on running.
I've found a function "mount_info::conv_to_win32_path" in the cygwin
library. Is it possible, that this function can convert illegal filename
characters to valid ?
