This one has me baffled. Head against desk for a while.
please load my test stack with
go stack URL "http://fulton.barncard.com/bugz/multilineRenameBug.rev"
(It only creates suffixed files in a folder that you create or point to
after clicking a button.)
I am renaming files like this in a script in a loop:
Rename file "/Volumes/20101202 USB-320/test rename2/1 Audio
Track.aiff" to "/Volumes/20101202
USB-320/test rename2/1 Audio Track.aiff"
results in files being renamed, but minus the dot suffix, like "01 Aerogel"
instead of the desired "01 Aerogel.aiff"
1. hasn't anyone noticed?
2. Could it be related to that annoying message that comes up when users try
to change suffixes ?
3. Or is it an engine bug?
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm about to make a bug report. THis is
happening in 4.0 and 4.5.2. MacOSX 10.5.8 G5 Dual 2.5 ghz - not tested on
any comments or ideas welcomed..
