Thanks for the bug report.

How reproducible is this issue? I cannot reproduce here - what were you doing at the time?

Comment 3 Paul W. Frields 2010-12-18 18:54:25 UTC
It looks like a problem with the file name selection routine, but I haven't been able to reproduce it either. I've no doubt it's a real bug but a reproducer would really help! :-)

Comment 4 Paul W. Frields 2010-12-21 12:37:30 UTC
John, there is a new 0.1.7 release and package waiting in updates-testing. The workflow for file name selection has changed slightly and might affect this bug.  Can you try it out?


Comment 5 Paul W. Frields 2011-01-11 22:47:20 UTC
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 6 John Poelstra 2011-01-11 23:57:37 UTC
can't reproduce.
