actually, you've just proved the patch works as intended on your

Only the shortname=winnt would create a 8.3 name when you use the
filename dscfNNNN.jpg. That is why my first patch in May forced

shortname_flags = VFAT_SFN_CREATE_WINNT;

when the patch triggered. I think this is the only sane behaviour for
a VFAT filesystem on Linux. Unfortunately it isn't the default, and at
least on my Ubuntu system the automatic mounting doesn't get this

I'd love to change the default or do an override, at least when
dualnames is diabled. Hirofumi-san, what do you think?

Cheers, Tridge

PS: I'm assuming you actually typed "shortname=" not
"shortnames=". The option is not plural.
