I don't think we need to change the value of
w32-get-true-file-attributes on FAT32 volumes.  All we need is fix
server.el to not barf on FAT32 volumes.  I'll see what I can do.

There's no need to become angry, either.

This developer simply doesn't have enough time to fix everything right
away.  That is the only reason this bug is not yet fixed.  That, and
the fact that no one else beat me to it.  There's no show-off anywhere
in sight.
