Using Orion 020329 kit, JDK 1.4.0, Windows 2000
1) View the Explorer
2) Mount a filesystem
The "New Wizard - Local Directory" dialog opens by viewing
the "My Documents" folder.
3) Try to create a new folder in "My Documents" by
clicking the new folder icon
No new folder is created, nothing happens.
If a subdirectory of "My Documents," which doesn't
have a space in its name, is opened and the new folder
icon is clicked then a new folder can be created.
Added SPACE_IN_PATH keyword
On my PC, the "My Documents" directory contains
the directories, "My eBooks" and "My Pictures."
A new folder can be created in "My eBooks" but
not "My Pictures."
So, it appears that if the 2nd word of the directory
name begins with a capital letter than a new directory
cannot be created.
I didn't try it myself, but from what you described I understand that
you are trying to create a new folder in the JFileChooser component.
That component comes from Swing, we just use it. If it fails to
create a new folder, then please file bug against JDK. We cannot fix
it from outside Swing.
