Description Neat 2009-05-16 06:00:33 UTC
In rare cases (happened twice on my installation) unsuccessful WebDAV MOVE between different disks causes a file being moved to disappear (both source and destination).
Client was Total Commander WebDAV plugin version 1.6.

This happens because if move operation could not delete the source after move (for whatever reason), it deletes the destination! (see modules/dav/fs/repos.c, lines 417-438)
This behavior should be disabled.

The same problem was reported here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=273476
