Ron, you haven't provided _any_ detail about how you are accessing the
8.3 named files - over the network/a fat partition that you have and
access via dual boot/some other thing.
In fact you haven't provided enough detail for a cygwin developer (me)
to say that you are discussing a design choice, and not a implementation
choice of yours!
