When moving a project folder(e.g, 'foo'), to foo/foo, The ide was caught in an endless loop.and when I finally stopped the program, and went to 'foo' to have a look, I saw an infinite loop of 'foo' folders....and when I wanted to delete it, the system told me 'the folder has too long a name and thus cannot be deleted.'
I'd appreciate it if you could fix this bug sometime and more if you could tell me how to get rid of this foo folder...
Could you please describe step by step what actions do we need to take to try to replicate your problem? E.g. how do you move project folder, using which window etc.
Please add steps to reproduce and reopen, thanks in advance.
- create project 'foo'
- project popup | Move...
- add "\foo" to the ond of path where to move
for a deleting such weird folder structure I've googled (and tested) that best is to boot to some Linux system (E.g. Ubuntu on live cd) and delete folder from Windows FS from command line (rf -rf $PATH_TO_FOO_FOLDER)

OK, let's consider this user error fixed. Hopefully there is not going to be too many advantagerous users trying to copy a folder into itself.
Ugh, thanks a lot. I was just trying to move it into the folder and then rename it. I should have renamed it first and then move it.
