After having sent the comment, I had, with their names,  just an idea about
the meaning of these booleans but not why they were used like this.
Now if I understand what Lionel said, I don't know if DBF files should be
consider as DBase files.
I didn't test what's the result with ODS, ODP, etc.  (instead of ods, odp,
...) files and I don't know what should it be :
must we consider ODS is not ods for example ?

About stat, st_dev, st_ino functions, I must recognize it's too complicate
for my too feeble skills so I can't keep on for this subject.

At the beginning, I just thought by pointing out the cause of the pb, the
solution would be easy to resolve (for me !), I was wrong :-)

To sum up, Lionel's feedback helps but it'll help more some real devs than
me :-)
