Error description

  • If a user puts a file in directory /SEND, the directory name
    retrieved through the API must be always /SEND without regard
    to the file name.  However, we see the API behave as follows.
    
    (Case-1)
    File name: S
    Dir name retrieved through the API: /
    
    (Case-2)
    File name: E
    Dir name retrieved through the API: /S
    
    (Case-3)
    File name: N
    Dir name retrieved through the API: /SE
    
    (Case-4)
    File name: D
    Dir name retrieved through the API: /SEN
    
    (Case-5)
    File name: END
    Dir name retrieved through the API: /S
    
    The API is delimiting the file path with the file name
    and picking up the first sub-string as the directory name.
    This is illustrated as follows in case of Case-5, for
    example.
    
    File Path: /SEND/END
    File Name (Delimiter): END
    First sub-string after splitting: /S
