... come to think of it, regardless of SE_BACKUP_NAME, if the
application uses CreateFile without the FILE_FLAG_BACKUP_SEMANTICS flag,
which is not really typical for Win32 calls anyway, then the application
will get an ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED when trying to create a file in such
a directory.

Shouldn't that be sufficient?
