Installed from: Debian testing/unstable Packages
When I try to copy files that contain non-FAT-Characters from my ext3 partition to my vfat audio player, dolphin and konqueror just refuse to do this. This is annoying since I have lots of music files that use a colon as separator, or have "?" in the track name.
Nautilus from gnome just changes this characters to an underscore on copy, and I think it would be nice if one could configure such a behaviour in KDE, too (starting nautilus inside KDE4 sucks^^).
I don't know if kio file is the right place for this bug, so please move it if you know a better one.
the slave shouldn't do this, either it's done in the application (dolpin) or the KIO layer itself.

A list of illegal filename conventions for FAT / NTFS filesystems can be found here: http://www.grouplogic.com/knowledge/index.cfm/fuseaction/view/docID/111
This problem is especially relevant for Digikam users, as Digikam default rename option uses the : character, which is illegal in FAT file systems. Therefore copying files from Digikam to USB sticks is a pain. Yes, I know that there is a workaround: change the Digikam settings. But that is for that specific case. This bug requests that all cases be dealt with intelligently. Thanks.

CopyJob: ask users about replacing invalid characters in file/folder names
Some Windows filesystems disallow certain characters, which would result in
the copy/move ...etc failing if one of the files has one of those characters.
Now the user can select to replace those invalid characters with an "_".
