I read when you had written that text, but (acc to my wife) I'm
forgetting everything. Sorry for that!

Cygwin seems to be different, for example trailing spaces are not a
problem. And, as you might see in tramp--test-special-characters,
several other special characters in file names work for Cygwin, which
are not valid for Windows.

Best regards, Michael.
