clone dialog generates bad directory name based on URL, ignores overrides

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open Explorer, navigate to dir, right click, select "Git clone..."
- Enter URL in form user@host:test.git. Directory is filled in with
C:\dir\ser@host:test.git (also note missing first character)
- Hit OK
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
-> Progress box shows
git.exe clone -v "user@host:test.git" "C:\dir\ser@host:test"
fatal: could not create work tree dir 'C:\dir\ser@host:test': Not a directory.
-> If I override the directory name with "C:\dir", I get
git.exe clone -v "user@host:test.git" "c:\dir\ser@host:test"
fatal: could not create work tree dir 'c:\dir\ser@host:test': Not a directory.
Note that it has completely ignored my override.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
git version 184.108.40.206
Windows Vista Business SP1, 32 bit
Please provide any additional information below.
-> Workaround is to clone via command line.
