DIRECTOR: Windows version of Spaceship Warlock has stopped working

My Windows version of Spaceship Warlock (1.1.3) has stopped working, both with the development version and the 2.6 branch. My Mac version (1.1.1/1.1.2) is still working, however.

The intro runs fine (except for the missing piece of music, see https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/12832), but when I try to start the actual game nothing happens. ScummVM prints the following warning:

WARNING: Movie stambul does not exist!

Bisecting points to the following commit as being the cause of the regression:


So I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that there's a directory called "stambul" (if I change the name of it to upper-case, the warning message changes too). But there is in my Mac version as well, so I don't know.

I've confirmed this happens to another game too, with an identical cause: a directory with the same basename as a movie. I have a patch for this, https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/pull/4140, but I've asked Sev for feedback as the author of the original commit that added directories to the file filter in 1823539136a680e40153108542db4b8f3481e6ca.
