I don't use paths with spaces.... so I did tried that one after your post
(see other reply)

> The procedure you describe is slightly different to what I was doing. I
didn't select a file before setting the default path. I don't think it is
right that one should have to do so. Just navigating to the directory should
be sufficient, just like the Windows "Browse" function.

It IS sufficient IF:
- the combination of Selection: and content of the field below are a path
- and (at the moment) there are no spaces in that path
(but: after important, the Current Path is correct, with or without spaces)

The Player Records uses the names of the ongoing match.
So: yes. Inadvertently it could mess things up.

If you keep the record of your good friend 'Xyz', load a match of 'Xyz' with
'Abc' and afterwards you yourself start a new match with gnubg, the names
'Xyz' and 'Abc' will be the ones displayed.
Save Player Records will add to 'Xyz' and 'Abc', yep. Not to 'yourself'.
