Cleaning up after aws cli on Mac OSX...

I've installed the aws command line on my Mac. It's super handy. However, the aws s3 command creates $folder$ files for every "directory" when a recursive copy is performed. It's super annoying. 

For example, you could have a "directory" in S3 named "myfiles". When you download the objects with "myfiles" in the path you will end up with a file named "myfiles_$folder$".

Running aws --version returns this info:

    aws-cli/1.10.6 Python/2.7.10 Darwin/14.5.0 botocore/1.3.28

I haven't found anything that explains how I can prevent those files from being created, so I've been doing manual cleanup afterwards.  This is the command I run:

    > rm $(find . "*$folder$")
