I was overlooking that it was working on NTFS, you are correct.

I'm fine with fixing the test_nonasci.test_platform test, to create the
files with a counter, or whatever, to help it pass.

I wonder about having tests that show where platforms are broken, so
that users know what they can/cannot do. It seems like a useful thing,
but would probably need to be marked differently so that users would
know that we know about the problem, but there isn't anything we can do,
because it is a platform limitation.

Can you test the attached bundle, it should get the tests to run on your
machine. Can you apply it and let me know? Since I can't test it here.
