I don't know how MSDOS handles names that start with dot, so either this
is a special case that's OK, or it's indeed a problem which we hadn't
noticed yet.

This one, OTOH is OK because the `admin' subdir is not included in the
tarball, so its name is irrelevant.

Good point.  I guess Eli hadn't noticed it yet.

Here, again, the `test' subdir is not included in the tarball, so it's
not an issue.
