Hi Andreas,
can you upgrade to 6.5.0 please? 1) 6.4.2 has a severe bug, 2) The
handling of the top-level dir was refined and it might work better 3) it
provides the "--info -u basic" switch that outputs a list of all folders
and their "translated" names for easier debugging.

That was an annoying but harmless glitch that has been fixed since.
