    I noticed today that if a connection dies it's possble for 4.0.3 to be displaying one directory while it's actually in a sub directory. So if you restart the transfer, for the things which didn't make it, fetch looks for them in the sub dir and reports that they don't exist.

    Also is there some limit for the amount of items you can drag and drop? I was working with a dir which had 1,375 sub directories, and had obtained about 900 of them when the connection died. Highlighting the rest and dragging and dropping, resulted in my wife's dual 500 spinning its wheels untill the connection died (or I killed off fetch and restarted the finder) :/ (This is on OS X 10.2.6)

    My workaround was to do the transfer in smaller chunks.

    Actually if you have a transfer in progress, then highlight some more files and drag and drop them, the directory confusion can occur there as well; fetch just opened a new window changed to the dir it was currently in for the other transfer (rather than the directory it was showing it the window I dragged from) so again the items did not exist on the server...

    Thanks for the reports -- I've added those items to our bug database to address in a future release.
