Just for the record - it DOES complain when appropriate (e.g. when copying
a file from e2fs to vfat/fat (and maybe ntfs too, but I have no ntfs mounts
in my Linux system).

That's odd though - regular DOS calls (both the standard and LFN APIs)
that set a files timestamp work just fine on read-only files (looking
in the source for utime on DJGPP, there is no code to chmod +w/-w).
Strange that the Windows APIs work differently.
