error saving standalones in 2.5.1

I've verified that there's no folder--or anything at all, in the folder
in which I'm trying to build the standalone to. I don't have any
suspicious characters in any of the file names. Again, 2.2.1 built the
standalone with no problem, but 2.5.1 immediately gives me the error
dialog after I tell it where to save the standalone. I appreciate the
help. Any other thoughts?

We've seen one other thing cause this. Under some conditions, if you
already have a folder of the name of the app in the directory where
you're trying to build the new one, Rev will choke rather than
overwrite. This isn't 100% repeatable and I suspect there's also
something about the folder/app names themselves, so I haven't
Bugzillaed this, but maybe it's a pointer for you.
