      at oracle.dbtools.raptor.ui.URLFileChooser.setCurrentDirectoryFromPathContext(URLFileChooser.java:1471)

      at oracle.dbtools.raptor.ui.URLFileChooser.setDefaultPathContext(URLFileChooser.java:1537)

      Has anybody experienced this issue? I tried to google the error, but found nothing so far.
