When trying to save an attachment using the "Save File as" (from File - Save as) funtion within the GW client
the "Bad File Error" is diplayed.


Reported to Engineering.

There is a workaround and it's saving the attachment from the attachment window and
doing a right-click on the attachment – save as.
