Hmmm... isfile() apparently uses some OS functions that don't
check for valid characters in filenames.
If it is a bug then it is a bug within Windows.
But from the Windows point of view, a " in filename
is simply some piece of corrupted data so it can do anything with it.
It's good it doesn't display BSOD. ;-)
