Bug Description

UI @ Preferences -> adding Bookks -> Automatic Adding : Specify a Folder

Will accept the path: E:\folder\subfolder\.leaffolder

Will not automatic add books dropped in that folder (after restart of course)
Does not issue warning or error

Works fine with E:\folder\subfolder\leaffolder

This should work, is otherwise undocumented AFAIK if intentional.

Windows 10 Anniversary x64
Calibre 2.70 x64

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
