#1379 closed defect (wontfix)

msdos_filename_unix2dos sets \x0 in name

The DOSFS does not allow a \0x (nul) character in a file name. If a Unix file name has a character that is mapped to \0x the code currently places the \0x in the DOS file name. This is an error and detected by the dosfsck program.

I cannot see the problem in the DOSFS code. If an trace can so the failure other than the dosfsck then I will take a look.
