syn match netrwCopyTgt "Copy/Move Tgt:" contained skipwhite
eliminates the error message, but the text that is highlighted by
hi netrwCopyTgt term=bold cterm=11 gui=bold guifg=yellow
is still only the text "Copy/Move Tgt:" in the header region of the
netrw window. The occurance of the directory name itself in the file
listing part of the netrw window is not highlighted.
This is better than it was before, though. Thanks again, Tony,
