[fpc-pascal]strange problem

I have a strange problem with FPC 1.0.4 under Win95B.

I made a very simple program under Linux. Then I wanted to compile it
under Windows, as I always do. It compiled without errors. But I could
not start it. It always said "Invalid filename", although it doesn't
work with files at all.

I tried everything to get it going. And now the very strange thing: 
when I copy the program into a directory with a DOS-compatible name - 
it works - without recompiling!

Since other programs don't have this problem, it seems to be a bug in
the SYSUTILS unit. It seems to be incompatible with Windows.
Is it a known bug? Are there already bugfixes?

P.S.: Did I already mention, that I HATE WINDOWS!!!
