In trunk, the conversion of a SHAPE file (points) to CSV fails. It creates an empty ASCII file.
Additionally, the button description is felt to be confusing: "Dataset" does not indicate that a directory is meant.

Second bug: if the "Dataset" directory already exists, the converter fails with "Failed to create...". In the shell terminal a message is seen that it already exists: it would be important to catch this directory-present error and ask the user to suggest a different name.

"Layer" as button description is also unclear (for CSV): indeed a file name is meant.
