Description Stefano Pettini 2018-01-02 21:03:23 UTC
According to Microsoft documentation, not only the following characters are not supported in VFAT <>:"/\|?* but also filenames cannot end with space of dot.

This last part is not corrected by the "VFAT-safe file name" option when renaming tracks. For example, songs ending with "..." create a problem.

Pushed by spettini into branch 'master'.

VFAT-safe file and directory names cannot end with dot

This adds special handling of trailing dots to vfatPath(),
that are replaced with '_'. This doesn't affect '.' and '..'.

  ../Music/R.E.M./Monster -> ../Music/R.E.M_/Monster

Unit tests updated, minor bugs when vfatPath() is invoked
with a PathSeparatorBehaviour not matching the system
detected by improving unit tests and fixed.
