Yes, I agree with you, I cannot assume this, so I checked. In my case, the
inode numbers are indeed identical.

I’m certainly willing to accept that there are going to be limitations by using
a filesystem from two different operating systems. But regardless of the
problems caused by that pattern, would you agree that the Windows code should
be using the actual inode number (well, 32-bits of it) instead of zero?
