Description Alexander Pepin 2010-05-21 16:11:47 UTC
There are two issues here:
- returned path contains backslashes instead of slashes e.g. "\shared\dp\sstrunk"
- returned path contains doubled parts if a user expanded nodes in file chooser by double-click

Steps to reproduce:
- add remote host
- call  "Add New Tool Collection" dialog
- press "Browse" in "Add New Tool Collection" dialog
- navigate to the root directory
- expand (press on [+] sign) "shared" node
- expand (press on [+] sign) "dp" node
- double-click on "sstrunk" node to expand it, it's expanded, "File Name" field contains right path "/shared/dp/sstrunk"
- press Open
Result: Base directory field in "Add New Tool Collection" dialog contains 

It looks for me as a potential showstopper.

It makes remote file chooser mostly unusable on windows and it should be fixed in 6.9.
