I'm going to close this as won't fix: the underlying implementation is simply calling GetFullPathName and removal of trailing spaces doesn't seem too surprising a result. It is possible to manipulate such files using Windows' special \\?\C:\... syntax.

While I admit this could catch you out if you were trying to nail an illegal-but-existent filename, we try not to put warnings in the docs for every cornercase lest they become cluttered.
