Cannot change to write-only directory
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:15:59 EDT
Description of problem:
In FTP filesystem it is not possible to change to a write-only directories
present on some FTP servers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mc
2. select `Ftp link' for either panel
3. enter `upload.sf.net'
4. try to change directory to `incoming'
An error box saying `Cannot change directory' and directory is unchanged.
mc changes to directory `incoming', though it is unable to display the file list
there therefore it displays is as empty.
This is a regression, it used to work in FC3.
It seems to be fixed in the rawhide mc, where we have some more recent CVS
snapshot of mc. At least I'm able to chdir to the "incoming" subdirectory with
no errors. I see no files there though.
The FC5 update is comming soon.
I can confirm mc-4.6.1a-16 (from devel) fixes it for me.
mc-4.6.1a-13.FC5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
