# wx.DirDialog defaultPath

Is there some kind of parsing/checking that is done on the defaultPath?  The
path I would like to set as default is something like this:

"c:\Somedirectory\engineering\somedirectory".  When providing this as the
default, the control seems to think it is an invalid path, although it IS a
valid path under Windows.  I'm pretty sure this is because two directories in
the hierarchy have the same name.  Since it believes this is an invalid path,
the dialog opens up browsing in the root directory.  I can successfully set
the default to other directories, nested as deep as I want and it works as
expected.

Anyway around this?

Thanks!
