WebDAVFS and Dreamweaver

Hi again,

Having caught the Subversion bug, I'm still looking into ways to make using
a Subversion repository largely transparent for our web authors using
Dreamweaver MX. Last week I reported the Mac os X Dreamweaver MX webdav
client doesn't work with mod_dav_svn + mod_dav_lock because prior to doing a
put of a new file, Dreamweaver tries to lock that (not-yet-existent) file
and gets a 447 failure back, causing it to fail.

I have better luck mounting the repository using MacOSX WebDAVFS. But there
are a few weirdnesses. Everytime I try to update my local copy from the
remote mount, Dreamweaver creates a directory XYIZNWSK (MKCOL
path/XYIZNWSK), the deletes it. This is apparently an attempt to determine
the remote server time for doing synchronizations with
the server, which fails for
some reason with the Dreamweaver error message, "Dreamweaver cannot
determine the remote servers date and time. The sychronize feature is not
available" So for zero real changes I get two revisions to the repository.

Putting a new file works, but the O.S. also puts a file of _filename in as
well. When I use the Finder to put a file, the OS later deletes _filename.
1 Change and 3 revisions (put filename, put _filename, delete _filename).
When I put a new file using Dreamweaver, for some reason the _filename
doesn't get deleted. 1 Change, 2 revisions, and 1 extraneous _filaname file
left in the repository.

I don't know how this works agains mod_dav_fs or with Windows Webfolders
(perhaps I'll find out).
