> Frédéric, Thanks for your answer. As a wine design question, is it reasonable for wine to have a flag that allows it to escape certain special characters and handle a greater subset of BSD names, except in the obviously clashing cases like backslash '\' and colon ':'?

Most likely not. AFAICT linux and BSD both accept all characters but
the '\0' in filenames. Wine OTOH must follow windows naming
If you really need it, you could try to remove '?' from
INVALID_NT_CHARS chars list in dlls/ntdll/directory.c (line 134 or so)
and recompile wine.
No guarantee though.
