[izpack-users] path issues in TargetPanel

One of the users of my installer ended up with  pathname that included a 
trailing space, when installing on Windows. The directory Windows created was 
spaceless, while the installer ended up with a variable that included the 
space in the pathname. When subsequently installing the contents of packs, 
all sorts of errors occurred indicating that the specified directory didn't 

My thought is that the best place to fix this is to trim the chosen path in 
actionPerformed() in PathSelectionPanel.


diff -r1.5 PathSelectionPanel.java
<                 String path = fc.getSelectedFile().getAbsolutePath();
>                 String path = fc.getSelectedFile().getAbsolutePath().trim();

While this means that people who want to use target paths with trailing spaces 
in non-windows environments may be inconvenienced, I think that the impact 
will be small.
