A search through the sandbox repo for "aux" reveals directories and
files with "aux_" and "auxiliary", but no "aux" just by itself, so
you're probably not the only one that thinks that.

And judging by a google search and an actual attempt at creating an
"aux" folder on my desktop, it does look like "aux" is indeed a reserved
name on windows...

Would it be possible for the creator of the "statistics" folder to
change the directory of "aux" to, e.g., "aux_" ? I have modified the
subject in the hopes that this will more likely be seen by the
appropriate party.
