Hi folks,

Sorry to bother you with a problem occurring on an obsolete version, I will 
find a work-around for me, but I wanted to tell you -after making sure this 
was not reported before-, that on my 1.6.1 installation under Linux, 
ogr2ogr -update -append
is making strange errors :

It interpretes the paths in a strange way:

ogr2ogr -update -append merge.shp fileone.shp -nln second

ERROR 1: Failed to create file .shp file.
ERROR 4: Failed to open Shapefile `merge.shp/second.shp'.


ogr2ogr -update -append merge.shp fileone.shp
ERROR 1: Failed to create file .shp file.
ERROR 4: Failed to open Shapefile `merge.shp/fileone.shp'.

If it was resolved, forget it, if I am the only one, forget it maybe also... 
but this is strange...
