<Filename> mask deletes terminal period [#13785]

When using "Tools > Convert Format" to create MP3 files in a new destination using the mask:
if the file name ends in a period (in addition to the one which punctuates the file extension),
it is deleted in the new file specification. For example:
J:\Audio\FLAC\U.S.A..flac is converted to J:\Audio\MP3\U.S.A.mp3

Running MMW on Win10 Pro

The file can be renamed with a double period using Windows File Explorer, so Windows appears
to have no problems with 2 periods here.
