I am trying to get leases.sig from the XS to the USB stick. On 8.2.x,
Browse.xo saves the file as

   File leases.sig from http://...

... two possible ways to move next.

Copy and rename

 1 - Insert (fat-formatted) USB stick, once mounted copy the file to
the USB stick. Check on Terminal indicates that the file has the LFN
we expect ("File leases.sig from http://...").

 2 - Switch to the 'USB disk' view of the Journal.

 3 - Rename the file to leases.sig . A check from the commandline
shows that the file has not been renamed. Oops?. The Journal only
renames the metadata. Bug?

Rename and copy

 1 - Rename the file in the Journal to 'leases.sig'

 2 - Insert (fat-formatted) USB stick, once mounted copy the file to
the USB stick. The Journal reports that the file is called lease.sig.
