I did ask about this last year. I have two albums which are actually 
directory names on disk. Both properties and rename are greyed out, one 
shows as Graphics1 and the other as /home/stuart/Work/Graphics, so you 
can see this uses the full path where as the other simply uses the 
directory name. What I wanted to do was rename the one which uses the 
full path to just use the final part of the directory name ie. Grpahics.

It makes no sense that they are named differently as the are both 
directories in the Work folder. This is on Linux (obviously). How on 
earth did this happen?
