Bug report #11950
exporting Atlas features with Output to multiple files creates and overwrites single file with Selected Folder name

When exporting Atlas features with Output to multiple files (i.e., 'Single file export when possible' checked OFF) and using either the Atlas export menu or the Atlas Preview menu, Select Folder, the export then creates a single page file of the current atlas feature with the name of the Selected Folder (in directory one folder up from Selected Folder)and repeatedly overwrites this file as each atlas feature is exported. When export is complete only the last feature remains; Abort leaves the pdf with the last feature exported.
Issue was reproduced with exports to Image as well (jpg and png were tried).
Steps to reproduce:
1 - Create a set of features for Atlas generation
2 - Export file name set to be based on one of the attribute fields (attempted with both $atlasfeature and $currentfeature)
3 - Select Folder
4 - Export
Folder with multiple output files for all Atlas features. This feature worked fine for me in mid-November 2014, creating a folder of multiple output files of one page for each feature.
