No, I don't think so: the above was reported in Emacs running on a
Posix platform and accessing an NTFS volume. Whereas this report is
for a Windows port of Emacs, which already avoids characters (such as
`*') that Windows filesystems disallow.
Personally, I'm clueless as to how this problem could ever happen in
the native Windows build of Emacs.
