[MBS] FolderItem and extension
Date: 30.04.13 11:43 (Tue, 30 Apr 2013 12:43:48 +0200)
From: Massimo Valle

These methods:

FolderItem.nameWithoutExtensionMBS
FolderItem.nameExtensionMBS

IMHO fails with UNIX invisible files like ".DS_Store" where they say the name is "" and the extension is "DS_Store"
I understand the dot is the separator for name and extension but for UNIX invisible files starting with a dot, I believe they should behave differently.

Oh. Right. I'll fix that.
