Find First2 returns incorrect data ...

Often in your profiles directory, the SendTo directory has a file whose 
name is '31/2 Floppy Drive.lnk' where the 1/2 shows up as one of those 
funny characters under Windows. Under Linux it shows up as a small >>, ie, 
a ligature.

When Windows does a FindFirst2 on profiles/SendTo, the response in the 
Unicode, long name part, is just 3!

This causes profiles to fail to load.

This error was reported back Alan Evetts back in June 2001.

You can remove the file, and things will work, however, it would be 
better if FindFirst2 worked!
