Issue 452 – Workaround how Windows treat dots in filenames

: Core

: 4.2.4
– Unix treats three and more-characters filenames with dots-only as regular files. Windows treat them the same as .. (i.e. the parent directory).
– Windows trims trailing dots from filenames.
Once dot-only filenames are obscured from Windows, all security checks which hide dot-only filenames from user can be removed.
Along security checks for slashes in filenames were removed as well.
Actually fixed in WinSCP 4.2.4.
