I tried to reproduce this using an OpenVPN client that was configured and was able to successfully export on 10.10 Beta amd64.

Sorry, my mistake.
This bug applies just to -pptp case.

Closing OpenVPN and openconnect tasks.

In fact, I found out another bug.
In the Export window the proposed (default) folder to save file in is "Filesystem".

It should be user's home.

I opened another bug report for this.
