    When copying from an HTTP site, and not specifying a destination name, the
    copy appears to work but then the file does not show up anywhere. I suspect
    because the source has a question mark in it. I think it should have either
    actually generated a destination file or given me an illegal name error.

    I agree. I'll pass it on to Microsoft and the Ipworks developers, as the problem is in their code. (But I don't anticipate an immediate fix.)

    I see INVALID_NAME errors from procmon while trying to create the
    destination file. Is that in the ipworks module, or does that actually make
    it to your COPY code? If it's all in their code, c'es la vie.

    It does not make it back to TCC. (The HTTP get claims it succeeded.)
