No, it's not the same. When you export from a working copy, we use the
shell copy function to copy the files to the new location. If you export
from an URL, then the files are downloaded and created from scratch on
the harddrive.

I've just spent four hours with Vista, trying to find out why this
happens. And I've came to the conclusion that SHFileOperation() is
severely broken on Vista :(
Seriously: a simple test program behaves different on XP than on Vista.
First, Vista will copy hidden folders automatically while XP does not if
not asked to. Then, Vista will fail with an error code of 5 (no, those
errors are nowhere documented) in some situations where XP will work
just fine.

I will have to rewrite our export function completely to make this work
on Vista. But that will take some time...
