Naming a file
is a guarantee for problems, on all systems

Those who want to shoot themselves dead by these actions are free
to do so,but that is a similar good idea like naming a file
	echo;rm -rf $HOOME
literally. If youse you can do it, but you have to be sure to
never never use that file name in the wrong way ....

Simple advise and solution: Just don't do it. As much as 
Just don't format your harddrive without backup.

Best wishes

A highly specialised fiscal term used solely by turnstile
operatives at Regnet's Part zoo. It refers to the variable amount of
increase in the variable gate takings on a Sunday afternoon, caused by
persons going to the zoo because they are in love and believe that the
feeling of romance will be somehow enhanced by the smell of panther
sweat and rank incontinence in the reptile house.
