I'm not sure if this is a bug with the GlassFish Update Tool, the packaging of the Java EE 6 Tutorial as the Add-on component, or my Debian install.

I used the Update Tool tonight to install the Java EE 6 Tutorial component. The component seems to install correctly per the Tool. But, all the files and folders under glassfish/docs/javaee-tutorial get saved to filesystem with 2 main issues:

1. All path separators are backslashes ("\"), like on Windows.
2. All the paths are actually 1 big string per file, probably due to #1.

I removed and re-added the component, with no success.
In the end, I just downloaded a zip of the files at
and all the file/folders are correct.

System details from .updatetool/debian/updatetool.log
