bug in dropfile on filenames with slashes

dropfile has a bug with files or folders whose name contain slashes (yes, you can do that on MacOS). It outputs garbage:

drop: ?NW˔

opendialog has problems with slashful files (no output)

“opendialog fold” is ok with slashful folders (but the output as a symbol is useless)

I suppose that when you work with max, you have to decide to avoid using slashes in folder names. As well as avoid the first character of a disk being a space (that one took me half a day to discover).
