I saw this mentioned on IRC here​: but I don't see a bug report for it.

Creation of a file with invalid character still succeeds, but uses a different filename. Furthermore, doing stat tests, like .e, succeeds still because (presumably) the incorrect filename is abridged once again.

Here's the sample code. See the aforementioned IRC log for more details

perl6 -e "'foo​:bar'.IO.spurt('test')" # empty file "foo" created
perl6 -e "'foo​:bar'.IO.e.say" # True
