Description of problem:
If I get an exception in the installer and attempt to save it on another box, providing it with a full filename (as opposed to a directory name), I get an obscure error message. It's not obvious at all that the requested field is requesting a directory name, and not a full filename, which I expected, since it's far more useful. There's little point in overwriting anacdump.txt over and over, or creating multiple directories to get each one to hold a single file named anacdump.txt. It doesn't even mention the name the file was given!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Manage to trigger an exception
2.Choose to save it remotely
3.Name the filename for the remote exception
4.Try just a directory name
Actual Results: 3 doesn't work, and 4 doesn't tell you what the file name is
Expected Results: The field name should be clear as to what it's asking. 3 should work or fail with a better error message. 4 should tell you the file name.
Okay, it's been modified to use #3 from your steps to reproduce above.
