Description
Project wizards that asks for a project name causes an "Bad pathname" error when typing a name that starts on "con", "prn" or "nul".
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "File|New"
2. Choose "New Console", "New DLL" or "New GUI..." (other wizards may produce the same error).
3. Delete the sugested name and type "con" or "prn" or "nul"
4. An error window pops.
Workarounds
It's a minor bug. Just ignore the error and type the project full name.
