I see, thanks!

Ignoring the error is quite simple, however turning off the resource
walk sounds like a better idea. Is it something the client requests
or something the server sends automatically? I assume the client
could ignore it if it's the latter.

At present we have reduced functionality since my new check is raising
an error in cases where previously the client carried on after writing
a spurious file. I have code locally to restore that behaviour by
ignoring the error in ra_dav/fetch.c, I'll commit it if for some
reason we choose not to turn off the resource walk.
