Description Kirk Morrow 2001-04-23 09:59:10 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586)

When selecting a file to play, selecting the /.. directory adds /.. to the
path instead of removing the last directory level.  This only happens when
the return key is used, not when double clicked by the mouse.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the "Load File" window by selecting "Load File" or "+ File" in the
playlist editor.
2. Highlight the /.. selection under "Directories"
3. Use the "Return" key to select instead of double clicking the mouse.

Actual Results:  The value /.. is appended to the path.  If building a
playlist by scanning through directories rapidly by using the keyboard and
mouse (as I do when DJing parties) the path name starts getting wider than
the screen.

Expected Results:  The value /.. should have removed the last directory
level from the path and shortened the path name.
Comment 1 Kirk Morrow 2002-01-03 12:45:46 EST
This bug appears to be fixed in xmms-1.2.6-pre2 pre-release version.  When a
1.2.6 release RPM becomes available I will test it again.

will be fixed in 1.2.6-1 because of this; thanks!
