I will give an example; if I make the following directory in /mnt/data: ~xyz This works fine. Now I have an path like /mnt/data/~xyz If I double-click on this directoy to enter it, in emelfm2 I get the following error in the output-pane: The directory '/home/arnoutxyz/' does not exist! Which is of course true, but not what I had in mind. I just wanted to enter the specific directory. I think it should not expand ~ in the left an right-filepane.
