Same thing happened to me.  In S36 a file was called X.INRECV and there was an
OVRDBF BSRECV X.INRECV and the S36 program opened BSRECV.  Well,
when bringing this program up to date, I wanted to get rid of the override (to
logic) and got an error when compiling the F-Spec telling an invalid character 

the file name.

I wound up just renaming the file X_INRECV and was done with it.
