Seeing as you like receiving filebrowser complaints so much...'
If you select several files and do a copy, it prompts for "where", and copies all of the files to the specified directory.'
If you select a single file, and do the same, you apperently, have to give the complete name of the file to copy to.  If you just give the directory name {foo}<bar>bletch>, it will copy to {foo}<bar>bletch>NIL;1.  I think that if you don''t give a name, it should default to the source file name.'
