Hi, I've found a bug in 4.1.4 (build 407) when I use the Tools... Import... dialog box. This is on Windows XP SP2 32-bit. Let me know if you need further information to reproduce, I searched the FAQ, bug list, and forum and don't believe anyone else has reported this.

Thanks, I use WinSCP regularly and I greatly appreciate it.
