problems with mirroring (3 posts)

I'm having a couple of problems with mirroring.
(1) Clicking on a saved mirror file doesn't give me the opportunity to open the keychain if it is closed. If the keychain is already unlocked, Fetch gets the password from it without a problem. If the keychain is locked, however, Fetch simply asks for a password using a modal dialog. I have to cancel the operation then manually open the keychain using Keychain Access, then launch the mirror document again.
(2) Worse, mirror uploading creates bizarre, deeply nested subfolders as it is uploading, which eventually results in an error message something like "Fetch cannot handle this many nested folders." The source folder does not have anything even remotely similar to the hierarchy that Fetch is trying to create, though all of the subfolders Fetch creates exist in the source folder, just not in those deeply-nested locations.
Fetch is running under Mac OS 9.1. The server side is LinuxPPC 2000.
Any ideas? This must be working for others, as I could find no other messages about it here. It renders Fetch completely unusable in my application.
With regard to (1), I just noticed that if Fetch is already running when you launch the mirror document, then an "Unlock keychain..." button appears. If Fetch isn't running when you launch the mirror document, then it doesn't display the "Unlock keychain..." button and you have to cancel and repeat the operation to get access to the keychain.

Problem (1) is a bug that I only figured out last week -- it will be fixed in the next release.
As for (2), that sounds more serious. I would be interested in seeing a transcript of such a mirroring session run amok. You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to reveal the transcript window after you get the error message.
