Description Christopher Sawyer 2008-12-31 21:13:10 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

Here is a video I made demonstrating the issue.

DivX/AVI format (17.7MB):

Ogg-Video format for those of you who only believe in FOSS codecs (37.7MB):

I will leave these videos up until Feb-1-2009

Issues I have found:

1)  I have to manually remove the FTP port number from the URL bar in Dolphin to get Dolphin to connect to the FTP server

2)  I cannot copy or move any files to the FTP site although the account I am using has root privledges on the FTP server

3) I cannot create new folders on the FTP site through Dolphin.

I can confirm this is still an issue with Dolphin version 1.4 in KDE

I'll get locked out of my FTP servers because Dolphin tries anonymous FTP despite having a login name/password specified.

KUrlNavigator: Don't use KIO::stat() for all non-local URLs

Doing a text-resolving with KIO::stat() for all non-local
URLs leads to problems for protocols where a limit is given for
the number of parallel connections.
