Error saving files with Mac OS X 10.5 clients (WebDAV)

Hi,

I'm experiencing strange errors saving files with Mac OS X 10.5 clients using WebDAV. Users are getting error messages like "Document could not be saved", "Cannot access the file", "Operation could not be completed" or "Names are too long or contain invalid characters".

I have tried both the 2.1.0 Community Edition and the new Labs 3.0a Beta with some differences. Users were granted "Coordinator" Role on the Test space.

2.1.0 CE:
  • Users can open files from a space

  • Users can copy files from their local disk to a space using Finder

  • But they cannot save files directly to a space or save changes to a file opened from a space
Labs 3.0a:
  • Users can open files from a space

  • Users can copy files from their local disk to a space using Finder

  • Users can save files directly to a space

  • But they cannot save changes to a file opened from a space
The 3.0 version shows repeated "Access denied" errors in the logfile:


18:07:12,259 ERROR [org.alfresco.webdav.protocol] Internal Server Error:

Mac OS X 10.4 users are not experiencing any problems!

Is this a known problem? I really appreciate any help.
