"Browse For Folder" dialog box ambiguity while checking out from Repo Browser

From: Fitzgerald, Joe <jfitzgerald_at_gsig.com>

To see the ambiguity follow these steps:

1) Start the Repository Browser

2) Right click a folder in the repository, select checkout

3) Click the ellipsis button associated with Checkout Directory:

4) From within the "Browse For Folder" dialog box that has now popped
up, navigate to a convienent place, e.g. C:\

5) Click the "Make New Folder" button. "New Folder" is created in the
tree structure, and is higlighted and ready for me to type my new folder
name. Great. I type "blarg <Enter>"

Here is the ambiguity: I am now confronted with a dialog box that has
"blarg" highlighted in the folder tree, but says "Folder: New Folder"
immediately above the OK button. Looking at this I am not sure what
pressing OK will try to do - send data to the now non-existant "New
Folder" or to "blarg" like I just asked.

Recommendation: Update the edit box text once the file name has been
changed. Better yet, change the edit box to a label, since it seems to
ignore anything you type into it anyway. Keep it updated to make sure
it is consistent with the tree view.
