Can anybody reproduce this problem with trailing dots and spaces in
filenames on other filesytems than netapp?

It would be quite helpful to get feedback from people using filesystems
which are recognized by Cygwin as nwfs, unixfs, mvfs, or cifs.

For testing, try to create *in Cygwin* a file called "foo." and a file
" foo ".  If it works, and if a following `ls' and `rm' on the file
works as well, everything's fine.  If some error occurs, especially "No
such file or directory", then that filesystem probably requires special
handling just like netapp.
