Thanks for answering, but that's not the problem. I'm developing a plugin
for a specific application (realsoft3d) and this plugin mainly handles
single files - that's how I came accross the bug. My effort is to make this
bug public - my workaround will be, that I suply the file name via the
barton and check against the directory entries. Not the most elegant
solution but it will work till then. More important, it is recognized as a
bug. As the "site manual" said, a bug shall be first discussed here, before
put into the bug tracker.
