Relative links, incorrect error message

Steps to reproduce

Create folder named MyFolder
Open a new note named MyFirstNote in this Folder
In this note, create a link to ./MySecondNote (with either syntax)
Click on the link to MySecondNote and an error message is displayed:
“File names cannot end with a dot or a space”

This is with Obsidian 1.3.5 under Windows 11.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N] Y

Expected result

I would expect Obsidian to open the note in MyFolder.

Actual result

No new note is created.
Moreover the error message is wrong.


Obsidian version: v1.3.5

Additional information

Moreover, there is a difference of treatments between both link syntax:
[[./MySecondNote]] is working if we create the note
MySecondNote triggers the same error, even if the note exists.
