LR 3.5 [minor bug]: Import: Destination->Organize "by original folders" is possible (and behaves wrong) for devices/cameras w/o folders

Normally, at import, the option destination->organize "by original folders" is not possible for devices/cameras (at least not for those I have). However, one can force this option even if the camera does not support folders, and it generates meaningless dummy folder names.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start import dialoge
2. In "Source", select a "real" folder on disc.
3. Specify destination->organize "by original folders"
4. Create an import preset e.g. "bugtest"
5. Connect a camera not capable of folders
6. In "Source", select the camera
--> destination->organize changed from "by original folders" to "by date" (OK)
--> the import preset name changes to "bugtest (edited)" (OK, too)
7. Select the import preset "bugtest" again

Now observe the folder preview in the "destination" pane:

LR wants to import the fotos into the meaningless folder "0000\Root", which also exactly happens when the "Import" button is clicked.

Clearly, this "bug" is more a curiosity than a bug. Nevertheless I wanted to share it ;-)

P.S. I forgot: L3.5 under WinXP professional 32 Bit SP3. The camera tested with was a Canon S90 connected via USB 2.
