Bug #29394 Cant delete folder with name 2003

Its funny, when a directory is named "2003", I am unable to rmdir or rename it.  If I change the folder name (using windows explorer) to 2005, then I can run rmdir and rename with no problem.

The return error is Permission Denied.  But that isnt the issue as I can create a 2003 folder and 2005 folder at the same time, and I get the same problem.  I can only edit/delete 2005, and 2003 always gives permission denied no matter what.

I realize its possible this could be a windows issue.

Just curious don't ya think?

Reproduce code:
rename ("2003", "2002);

Expected result:
I expect it to delete/rename the directory.

Actual result:
Warning: rmdir(2003): Permission denied in C:\Documents and Settings\Mark\Desktop\www\new_pics\index.php on line 401

Tested in WinXP Home SP2, both functions work fine for me.
