It's an old MS-DOS problem...
They are the name of devices (con, aux, etc)

It says for con:
Cannot create or replace file: The filename you specified is invalid or 
too long.
Specify a different filename.

For aux:
Cannot rename : A file with the name you specified already exists.

The whole list of forbidden names (from memory):
aux (eg ttyS0), prn (eg lp0), com1 to com4, lpt1 to lpt3, con, nul and 
clock$
