Freemind appears to load and run fine, but I can't save, save as, or export any maps that I create.

I'm running the following JRE version:
java version "1.6.0_26"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)

And I've added "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin" to both my JAVA_HOME and PATH.

When I launch freemind.bat I get the following output:

C:\Program Files\FreeMind>freemind.bat
Checking Java Version…

STDOUT: User patterns file C:\Users\Tony\.freemind\patterns.xml not found.
STDOUT: User patterns file C:\Users\Tony\.freemind\patterns.xml not found.

And then when I click File -> Save As I get the following:
