The fix to bug report 51519 (http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=51519), seems to have gotten lost in 5.2.29. The standard settings for the Export Directory Path in the preferences show mixed delimiters. If a specific path is supplied using the file selector ("..." button to the right), delimiters are uniform.

How to repeat:
Go to Edit --> Preferences
Switch to "Administrator" tab

Suggested fix:
See fix for bug 51519.

i can only repeat the problem for the default value that is filled in for a fresh install (like C:\Documents and Settings\myuser/dumps) ... when i use the browse-for-folder button and select a folder this way, the selected path ins inserted correctly.

Restriction as described by Johannes Taxacher confirmed (see also original bug description).

It is a one-off installation issue.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.30 changelog:

The default settings for the Export Directory Path in the Workbench Preferences dialog used mixed file path delimiters, both '/' and '\'.
