A general problem with TK2 default directories. If the target device isn't there, TK2 think, this is a directory name.

This can lead to very unsightly results. As in this case.

Re: QL Tinkering

Well it is just a tick of a second, I usually do not use file manipulations, loading or saving in multitasking. :D

I also never use the TK2 default diectories as you are sometimes not sure, where you are. It can be more worse, if you also use the DEV mechanism.
