Subject: Re: Directory names with dots

I tested this out this morning, and found the following.  The directory
need not actually contain .com for the problem to occur.  I tried the
following combinations:

So as near as I can tell, the directory need only to contain a period.

If the directory is on a FAT drive, it will display the source to everyone,
if it is on an NTFS drive, and the permissions are set to everyone on the
directory, the source will display.  Only if there are restricted
permissions will it ask for a password.
