DDB Database/P99SE/SP6/W2k

What I'm saying is, open project X, generate Gerber's/export Gerber's and
they go
to project X directory (correct).  Open project Y, generate Gerber's/export
Gerber's and they
go to project X directory (wrong).  Open project Z, generate Gerber's/export
Gerber's and they
go to project X directory (wrong again).

Are you saying I'm the only one this happens to?
