I am trying to mix down one song from a two-hour live recording.  
Steps:
Song/Export Mixdown
Choose folder
Choose a filename, Format, resolution, sample rate
Export Range: "Between Selected Markers" - open drop-down list and choose the starting and ending markers for the song I wish to export
Press OK

Expected: selected area is mixed down to a new file
Actual: Failed to export audio file.
   The system cannot find the file specfied (E:\S1 Projects\project-name\sub-folder-name\mix-file-name.wav

Why is it LOOKING for the file I'm trying to create and why is it looking in a folder other than the one I'm trying to export to?
Why is it only failing for this one song?  I just found out that if I select between other markers that it works fine.
Re-naming the start marker and the output file seems to have resolved this.
So I'm guessing that this is due to the way S1 is deciding creating a numbered folder based upon the location of the markers within the project.  I don't really need/want that.  I want to decide where my mix goes.

Am I the only one experiencing this issue?  Out of the 12 song on this project (recorded live), there is just this one section Studio One will NOT let me export.  As WAV or as MP3.

I think I found the bug:
If there is a trailing space in the name of the marker, it confuses Studio One.
