On my windows xp box, I just ran the following three experiments,
all inside a window brought up by running Start->Run "cmd":

C:\ copy con foo
blah blah blah

C:\ copy con aux
blah blah blah

C:\ copy con aux.h
blah blah blah

The first experiment above created a file named 'foo',
containing 'blah blah blah'

The second and third experiments both returned to the
command prompt when I pressed "Enter" at the end of the
"blah blah blah", after first complaining:

The system cannot find the file specified.
0 file(s) copied.

This is on a fairly vanilla and uptodate Windows XP SP2.
