One alternative is to rename the files on the Mac end. There is a rather
splendid shareware program called Drop Rename that you should perhaps look
at. That way you have control over the renaming process
On the other hand, Fetch 3.0 has a Preference (Under the 'Upload' Tab)
called 'Encode and decode file and folder names' that might do the trick
for you, but that might just mean slashes and colons.
