Summary 0001848: FileList ought to flush in some manner when an image starts up on a different machine
Description If an image is saved one one machine with a FileList open and then copied to some other machine the FileList is invalid and ought to be flushed.

If the second machine is of a different platform to the first we get a very puzzling error (to a non-experienced user) of MyPlatform complaining about a problem with a SomeBodyElsesPlatformFileDirectory! Even if the platform is the same it is a little unlikely that the file layout will be identical.

Not sure exactly how to fix this, but it ought to be addressed.

The MPEG movie player has some file path testing to check if a path is
valid between image saves.
Maybe this could be implemented in a similar way in FileList

Maybe the same code that resets the author initials could do it.

It looks like maybe setDefaultDirectoryClass would be a good place to put something which gets rid of FileDirectory instances which belong to the wrong platform. That would be a start.
