Cannot attach into hidden folder

Steps to reproduce

In the sandbox vault:

  1. Set default location for new attachments to In subfolder under current folder
  2. Set subfolder name to .attach
  3. Create a note
  4. Paste an image into it → ok
  5. Paste the image again → nothing happens
  6. Repeat → nothing happens
  7. Change subfolder name to attach
  8. Paste the image a number of times → ok

Expected result

Image can be pasted more than once.

Actual result

After pasting the first time, I’m not able to attach anything else. Moreover, the .attach folder is empty.
