Bug Description

With the current version I cannot edit footprints and save them in the footprint editor under Windows 10 (64 bit).

They can be opened and edited normally, yet when it comes to saving, I get a warning saying:

Cannot open or save file "D:\Kicad\Libs\Footprint\LED_THT.pretty\LED_D3.0mm.kicad_mod\LED_D3.0mm.kicad_mod"

I don't understand, why the filename is doubled at the end, probably that is the root of all evil.

And not only can I not get the editor to save the file, it even gets deleted when I discard the changes, which is the only way to be able to close the program.
