Bug Description

I wanted to put each image into a folder with image creation date from exif. It sort of worked, but created additional folder with the name of image file.

Rename action parameters:
File Name: <filename>
In: /media/2ee9fa70-9c2e-40a5-a350-6c17f163f563/ZdjeciaPodzielone/<Exif_Image_DateTime.year>_<Exif_Image_DateTime.month>_<>/<filename>.<type>

The source folder for this action was /media/2ee9fa70-9c2e-40a5-a350-6c17f163f563/Nagraj/2005.07.26-blah.

I expected that the result will be something like this:

But the result was like this:

As you can see each image file was put into a separate folder with the same name as the image file.
I do not understand why. In my opinion this is a bug.

I was using phatch from your ppa for karmic.

Made a typo when copy&paste. The second file should be in the same folder name as it's name, that is
instead of

I think it happens with all images. I'm attaching one. My action:

{'actions': [{'fields': {'File Name': u'<filename>',
                         'In': u'/tmp/Target/<####Exif_Image_DateTime.year>_<##Exif_Image_DateTime.month>_<>/<filename>.<type>',
                         '__enabled__': 'yes'},
              'label': 'Rename'}],
 'description': '',
 'version': '0.2.7'}

Thanks for the picture! Please also attach your actionlist (*.phatch).

The content of the actionlist is in my previous comment. Is that not enough?

No, sorry. When we reproduce bugs we need to be able to reproduce them with one click. This avoids any potential difference and we are doing this in our free time, so we are very picky to save time.
Thanks for your understanding!
