It was only an idea, because you cannot select devices in the gui, but you
might be able to select a symlink in your direectory. And for that it must be
a real symlink of the filesystem, not some shell shortcut file, or a cygwin
special symlink that a MinGW program does not recognize.

Too bad, i guess Hatari just does a stat() there and looks at the filesize.
Getting the real device size is however very system dependent. Best you could
do is try the old open/seek-to-end-of-file approach.
