    Issue entering file path for music/playlists

    I have my music and playlists stored across a Windows network with shares turned on (and working fine for normal file sharing). When using 6.1.1 of slimserver, I get an error when saving a path change saying that the directory I entered is invalid. This is regardless of whether I specify the network path or the mapped drive path. I've never had this problem before using networked drives.

    The only thing unique is that I cleared and saved the paths with nothing in them before trying to enter these paths - so now the program has no pointers to music/playlist directories. It seems that once I cleared the path and saved it, it wouldn't accept these new paths. Known bug?
