I subscribe to a podcast named "Radio Adventures Of Dr.
Floyd - doctorfloyd.com", and when I added the feed to
iPodder2, it said I had none of the shows when I had
all of them in a folder named "Radio Adventures Of Dr.
Floyd - doctorfloyd.com". I decided to let one of the
enclosures download, and it downloaded the file to the
folder "Radio Adventures Of Dr Floyd - doctorfloydcom",
removing all periods/decimals from the folder name.

    Andrew can we parse the names for folders and replace
    'strange characters' with an underscore _ ?

    We can, but there's a cost. Everybody who is already
    subscribed to feeds with these characters will now get a
    second folder. We have to decide if we want to do that to
    our existing users, or alternatively if we want to take on
    the burden of writing code that migrates their old folders
    to new ones. This is nontrivial because it includes
    re-mapping all the tracks in their playlists.

    I understand. I think if we notice the user if he installs
    iPodder 2.0. This is the opportunity to make clean it up and
    get rid of 'strange' characters. (we also can add an extra
    popup the first time if there are folders changed, is also
    pretty friendly) Remapping folders, playlists etc. is
    way-out TMO.

    This is a feature not a bug. We designed it like this.
    - Ticket closed.

    (we're try to create safe path)
