There is no [append] in Cyclone AFAIK. If there was, this would be a
serious bug, as names of internals should not be used by externals
(for now).

This sounds like a MS-Windows issue, because MS-Windows does strange
things with filenames that only differ in Uppercase/lowercase letters.
If I create [Append] I get the cyclone [Append], not the Pd [append].
I find it hard to believe, that Pd will create its internal [append]
when you specify something like [Append] (but I didn't test for lack
of MS-Windows)
