Hi. If I check the option "Clean file and folder names" in settings it makes my video folders with "[" and "]" invisible. There is no problem with "[" and "]" in the physical folder, but it's when you write "[" and "]" in the virtual folder, under "Enter a name for this media Source", this problem appears.

And a secondary failure of this is that there are no option menu when pressing "c" on that invisible folder.

This has worked in a earlier build of XBMC, but it was a long time ago, so I cant remember what build. I'm not sure if it was even this version of XBMC.

Debug Log: http://pastebin.com/m6e5cb9c2
XBMC build 23548 PM3.HD
Windows 7 64-bit

What is the name of the source in question so that we may reproduce.

Secondly, why exactly are you wanting this option enabled anyway?

Cheers,
Jonathan

The name of the virtual folder is [FiLM] just like the real folder. Any name that starts with [ and ens with ] will do.
I have tried and found that this problem with invisibility only appears when both "[" and "]" is in the virtual name.
The "c key-press" problem remains even if just "[" or is used as the first character in the virtual name (not if "]")

Why i want this option enabled is simply that i have organized my real folders this way and it would be nice to have it this way as the virtual folders to. Its just cosmetic purpose.
There is no problem to access the virtual folder or see other subfolders that also contains "[" and "]", its just the first folder with a virtual name.

So why do you have "Clean filenames" on exactly? What are you wanting it to clean?

Right, so the problem appears to be that it's cleaning things it shouldn't be cleaning - correct? In particular, it's cleaning folders that start with a '['.
