This is only for the Windows version:

	    /* It is quite common for DOS system to have only one dot in a
	     * a filename.  So if we have something like this, we simple
	     * replace the suffix except in cases where the suffix is
	     * larger than 3 characters and not the same as tne
             * requested one.
	     * We should really map the filenames to 8.3 but this tends to
	     * be more complicated and is probably a duty of the filesystem

Use --output <yourfilename> if you don't like this behavious.
