TD Fails to open SLX files with an '&' in a directory name

I just figured out that TD fails to open an slx file if I
include the creation of an extra directory or a component
that contains a directory with an ampersand '&' in it.
Not sure if this is documented.

Tim,

It does not fail for me if I add a directory with '&' in it under the TD Extra Files section.
Let me know if that is not the repro case.

KM,

I have a component that creates a directory called AS&E.
If I include that component in my build, once I then
close the slx, I can no longer open the slx thereafter. I
remove the component and it works fine. There's not much
more to the component other than some registry data and
files. I will remove the directory with the '&' and re-
import the component...

Because the SLX is simply XML data, and the ampersand ("&") is a control
character for XML, this makes sense.

The fact that it doesn't cause a problem when using it in the Extra
Files Folder setting also makes sense - that's not stored as XML, so
doesn't get interpretted as such.
