Certainly, Tobias, if we can find what the problem is. I've just stepped 
through (with a debugger) examples of entered command "cd %f", and also checked 
"activation" of a dir using that command, where the selected dir was 
respectively "special~dir" and "~special-dir" (both of them sans quotes). I 
found it to work as expected. Likewise for "cd %%f".

Any more hints about what to look for ?
