      Description

      When I use a string which is a directory to create a PropertiesConfiguration, no
      exception is thrown. However, the configuration is unusable as it has no
      properties.

      For example, I do

      <code>
      PropertiesConfiguration temp =
      new PropertiesConfiguration("c:/baddirectory");
      </code>

      I get the expected

      <code>
      org.apache.commons.configuration.ConfigurationException: Cannot locate
      configuration source baddirectory
      </code>

      However, when I do

      PropertiesConfiguration temp2 = new
      PropertiesConfiguration("c:/windows");

      I don't get any exception. The difference between "baddirectory" and "windows"
      is that the former doesn't exist and the latter does.
