How do you know this? Unless you have the source code and probably a
history of what the program has done up to the point you specify the
path I don't think it's possible to know what R:foo means.

Have you tried the operation with an explicit destination? For example
r:\foo. If there is a small number of files exporting to r:foo might
complete before the dialog box pops up. AND since you really have no way
of knowing what r:foo means at any given point in time you would need to
search the while entire R drive to verify the that export did not
happen.

Don't take this wrong. I do not know whether a problem exists or not. I
am just pointing out that we (members of the mailing list) don't not
have enough information to really figure what might be going on.
