Description James Laska 2005-01-11 15:22:14 EST
RPM gnome-panel-2.8.1-6.i386

When using firefox, and attempting to take a window screenshot (<alt>PrntScrn),
I attempted to save the screenshot to my desktop.  However, I am presented with
an error dialog indicating that it did not have permissions to write the file. 
However, the real problem is it attempted to save the file while not escaping
'/' characters from the filename.  Hence, it tried to save the file
"/home/jlaska/Desktop/Screenshot-Index of /~komornik/tasche/fedora - Mozilla
Firefox.png".  Of course this fails due to the '/' in the filename.  I think
simply escaping the '/' as '\/' would fix this.
