      Description

      In an application which uses a file chooser I want to use the parent directory of a previously
      opened file as the initial directory for the file chooser. I test whether the path is
      valid before I call the setInitialDirectory method of the file chooser but for some
      valid paths this just results in a NPE. The bug should be reproducable with the attached
      program, assuming you have set up a corresponding directory structure.


      Path is valid! Initial directory: '..\JavaFX - Demos\data'

      <Some strange error message here which I was not able to copy/paste in here>
