mongorestore gives verbose error when dump directory doesn't exist

      When I run mongorestore with a directory that doesn't exist, I get an error that surfaces way more than I need to know.

      mongorestore -d test
      2016-02-23T11:08:36.978-0500	using default 'dump' directory
      2016-02-23T11:08:36.978-0500	Failed: can't create ActualPath object from path dump: stat dump: no such file or directory

      Ideally we would just say "no such file or directory" plus some helpful direction on what might be wrong. The ActualPath exposes implementation details that nobody needs to debug this kind of error.
