File upload permission denied loop

Reported by: tetsuo29a Owned by:

When attempting to upload a file to a folder where the
user doesn't have write permissions, the FileZilla GUI
is caught in a confusing loop. It displays a "File
Already Exists" dialog asking the user whether or not
they want to "Overwrite", "Overwrite If Newer",
"Resume", "Rename", or "Skip". None of this is
accurate, since the real problem is that the user has
no permission to upload/write the file. If you click
"OK" in the dialog and the default of "Overwrite" is
selected, the dialog simply returns an additional 2
times and then it appears as if the file was uploaded,
but a "Refresh Views" will then show that the file was
not uploaded. The only place that the user will see a
"permission denied" is in the message log. This is all
very confusing. If a user is being prevented from
upload a file due to permission denied, shouldn't the
GUI just present a dialog that states that?

This bug will be corrected in FileZilla 3. For the 2.x
branch, a fix would require very deep changes.
