Use the 2 Reference settings in your config again and tell us what
Traceback you receive.

If you could insert some debug output into
around line 166, making:
-                    for copyfolder in copyfolders:
-                        copyfolder.makefolder(key.replace(dest.getsep(), copyfolder.getsep()))

+                    for copyfolder in copyfolders:
+                        getglobalui().warn("MAKING FOLDER " + key.replace(dest.getsep(), copyfolder.getsep()))
+                        copyfolder.makefolder(key.replace(dest.getsep(), copyfolder.getsep()))

and tell us what folder it actually tries to create.

The specific crash is a regression, but you will still get a
traceback. Giving us the above information would help me to see what is
happening there. Thanks :-)
