When I'm using the SetDirectory command, typing a directory name
sometimes results in unexpected response, e.g. backspacing several
characters. This does not only happen when trying to type an invalid
directory name, so I had to use quite silly methods, for instance move
the files to "acceptable" directories. It seems to occur especially when
using directories which include "0" (zero) characters.

Has anyone had similar trouble and knows how to solve this?
