Description Adrian 2011-08-25 10:41:09 UTC
I have a project with a couple of directories and files that contain an ampersand (&) in their name. 

In the solution pad, the files are not displayed at all and the directories are displayed using a seemingly random names that change on mouse hover. It seems like it picks the name of the entry right above or the two entries right below in the list.

In the file pad I'm able to browse those files and folders without issues.
