I just tried to reproduce and it turns out the server has problems
saving a game when the path given to it contains dots. For example:

> save C:\Program Files\Freeciv-2.1.0-beta2-gtk2\civgame-test
Game saved as C:\Program Files\Freeciv-2.sav.gz

if a path without dots or no path at all is given, it works fine:

> save C:\Program Files\Freeciv-2_1_0-beta2-gtk2\civgame-test
Game saved as C:\Program Files\Freeciv-2_1_0-beta2-gtk2\civgame-test.sav.gz

> save civgame-test
Game saved as civgame-test.sav.gz

> save
Game saved as civgame-0400m.sav.gz

But this happens with 2.0.8, too, so I'm not sure if it is the cause of
the problem the ticket creator had. I couldn't find any other problems
with saving in the Windows clients, though.
