FileZilla v3.5.3. Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit. All latest patches installed. Details from "About" page are pasted in below.
Attempting to upload an open file causes FileZilla to go into a possibly endless loop of errors.
Steps to reproduce:
Connect to FTP server via SFTP.
Open file in MS Word. Make an update. Save it. [Leave Word Open]
Using Windows Explorer, drag file into FileZilla interface to upload it.
FileZilla goes into a seemingly endless loop. The status pane shows:
Error: local: unable to open C:\xxxxxxxxx\filename.doc
Error: File transfer failed
I don't recall prior versions of FileZilla having this problem, but I can't be sure. (I just find it hard to believe I've never tried to upload an open file before, accidentally or on purpose.)
-Error should be specific about why it can't upload the file (i.e. file open.)
-Error should ask if you want to retry.
-Error should only occur a maximum number of retries, either set or specified in the preferences.
