[BUG?] [Using Save as in Windows 7 explorer] Saving a file with a file name same as a folder name within a directory.

I recently encounter this issue while working on a project. I am not sure whether it should be considered as a bug.. probably not.. feel free to throw your opinion

How to generate?
1.Open a new word file in Microsoft office 2010/Notepad/Any other text editor.
2.Click Save as option.
3.Try to Save the file in a directory(folder) with some sub directory inside it.
4. Try to save the file with a name exactly the same name as any of the sub directory within that directory.
Example: If we have folder name "A" try to save the file named as "A".

Actual Result:
It actually open the folder that matched with the typed file name instead of saving the file with that name.

My Concern:
It should allow saving the file instead of opening the folder. [They are different types [directory and single file]. If you later visit that directory and rename the file to the same names as one of the directory it actually works fine with same naming!]

Whether it should be considered as a bug?
It might not…

Say no to Racism

There is no superiority of one culture over another one, whites over blacks, one religion over another one, rich over poor, one nation over another nation... 
Although our view is changing now a days and people are becoming more open to other cultures and races but Racism still exists in different forms. If we can educate our future generation, we can expect a better world free of racism. Home is the best place to start because education begins at home and parents are the best teachers!.
