As I remember, MSDOS uses the "~" to specify short versions of long file
I is not just msdos, it is cmd.exe which exists on (to my knowledge) all versions of windows. For example:
Program Files == progra~1

  I think that is enough for us to say that we are best leaving
'~' expansion only for Unix.  We already dump COPY in a native Win32
format, so it seems we should handle special characters in a similar
native way.

I will add a comment to this affect in the source code.
