I thought that's a VFAT thing and doesn't depend on Windows version.

That's why I need to set up a complete new system for tests. I only
have NTFS-based Windows systems without short names. I don't want

in one of my standard workstations either, for the same reason that
Ulrike doesn't want to change her setting.
