I don't think you're doing anything wrong; that sounds like Aqua's path
management is interpreting the underscores somehow, and only after it's
opened and scanned the containing folder does it recognize that they should
be literal. And all I can think of for interpretation is that it thinks
it's looking for a resource fork or something weird like that. (Maybe Apple
has something like NTFS streams going on somewhere in the filesystem code?)
