    This issue occurs sometimes (unstable).
    Please check the attached screenshot.
    It shows that repeated "tt" were printed as "t".

    I can guess that the source of the problem is that the framework "types" too fast.
    it can be fixed by holding half-a-second pause between identical characters.
    But in this case I cannot use conveniences of the DownloadDialogsMonitor class....

    Hello Alexey,
        I tried to reproduce this issue but I couldn't.

    Would you please send us the WebAii code of a test that exhibits this behavior.  We'd like to reproduce the issue locally.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Hey Stoich,

    it's not surprising.
    As I mentioned, the situation happens from time to time
    As you can see from the screenshot, my OS is Windows XP.

    The code for reproduction is very simple:
    invoke any file donwloading in IE, and use the DownloadDialogsMonitor to handle it.
    IMPORTANT: the path must contain repeated chars.
    Run this several times.

    Hello Alexey,
        could you please send us your test. It's possible that the issue only appears under some specific set of circumstances that you've stumbled upon.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Best wishes,

    Yes, probably the issue is specific to my environment.
    Anyway, I use a workaround (manyally type text making pauses between repeated chars) and it works.

    Hi Alexey,
        I'm glad you're able to work around this problem.

    Regardless, I would still like to try to reproduce this problem. If this is not a problem for you please go ahead and send us a test that exhibits this behavior.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Stoich

    I spent some time to investigate what happens. The problem is reproduced on Windows XP with IE8 when the system goes out of resources (and it's rather common that the testing machine is busy).

    In the attached file you will find a test case (Class1.cs) and a video.
    To reproduce the situation I had to simulate heavy load: before running the test I ran a simple app which consumed all RAM and crashed with Out Of Memory error (see HowToEatMemory.txt).

    Hi Alexey Ivanov,

    I tried reproducing the problem with repeated chars in folder save name, but couldn't - I tried it on both Windows XP with IE8 and Windows7 with IE8. In both cases the path if existant is properly shown and file saved. The only time I got to see this error message was when the path was not existant on the hard drive.

    As I can see you have found a workaround and you say it is only reproducable in heavy load, so please if you experience the problem again in future, please let us know to have another look at it.

    Kind regards,
