drag-n-drop an email with a slash in its subject creates a folder in Finder

Reported by Vincent Noel | June 6th, 2012 @ 12:55 PM

As per the title :

I have an email with the title "CALIPSO, CloudSat, EarthCARE Joint Workshop 2012 / Abstract notification". When I drag-n-drop this email in the Finder, it creates a folder named "CALIPSO, CloudSat, EarthCARE Joint Workshop 2012" which contains a file called " Abstract notification.eml". I'm not actually sure if this is bug or a feature. It was however a surprise, and I'd suggest to follow the path of least surprise and escape the email subject somehow :-)

    Just to be clear, this bug/problem was introduced in a recent test release (see #256). Thanks for reporting it. I've changed it such that occurrences of / are replaced with _ (like Apple Mail).
