If some folder exists only on one side, pressing enter on it makes WinMerge to offer to create a matching one on the opposite side. However the sub-path of this folder is not taken into account and matching folder is created in the comparison root.

Please see screenshot attached. Reproducable with

    What version of WinMerge are you using? I think something similar was fixed for latest stable release...

    Closing as this report lacks information needed/asked.

    Sorry, for some reason I did not receive email notification from SF when you originally asked about the version. Currently I am using 2.12.4.0 and I think that's the same version which I had when filed this bug. I think SF asked me about the version as well, I am very surprised it does not show the version I entered in the beginning anywhere.

    I could reproduce the bug with your example folders (thanks!). Attaching a patch that fixes the bug (UniqSubFolderCreate.patch).
