File tree collapses when clicking sub directory. Console shows the following error when clicking on a sub directory:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot create property 'C:/path/to/folder/here/' on string ''


I can make the file tree work by changing line 266 in /project/ProjectManager.js

ActionCreator.prototype.setDirectoryOpen = function (path, open) {
  this.model.setDirectoryOpen(path, open).then(_saveTreeState);

to this

ActionCreator.prototype.setDirectoryOpen = function (path, open) {
  this.model.setDirectoryOpen(path, open);

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Click directory on the file tree
  2. Click sub directory

Expected behavior: The sub directory should expand.

Actual behavior: The parent directory collapsed.

Is this happening with all folders or just this one? I am not able to reproduce this.

It's happening in all folders. I see this bug in my laptop but not in my desktop. Both have Windows 10 and similar software environment. Started having this issue after a Brackets update, but don't remember anymore which one was it unfortunatelly.
