    Here's a few references on NTFS name mangling:

    http://www-rnks.informatik.tu-cottbus.de/~fsch/Manuals/CfgWiz/Filesystem%20Settings.htm

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q130/6/94.asp

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/winresource/dnwinnt/S838C.HTM

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q195/1/44.ASP

    A lot of people advocate disabling short-name creation
    (http://www.jsiinc.com/TIP0000/rh0026.htm) due to performance
    and security concerns:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/iischk.asp#6



    ... mangled names are such a bad idea that
    even Microsoft advocates disabling them.
