Webdav copy & Windows 7 problem

Hi,

we're using alfresco Enterprise 3.3 and are having some trouble with using webdav from W7 computers.
We get a webdav explorer view on the repository and can open documents.
However when we try to copy/paste docs into that explorer, the operation fails.
W7 seems to think that the file is already there and tries to make a second copy.
I end up with a locked empty file.

When I look into the copy/paste traffic the webdav client does the following operations:
PUT <file> –> empty file
LOCK <file>
PROPFIND <file>
PROPFIND <file>
PROPFIND <folder>
PROPFIND /
PROPFIND <file(2)>
at which point I cancelled

If I compare a copy/paste operation on an Apache webdav instance this works and has the following sequence
PUT <file> –> empty file
LOCK <file>
HEAD <file>
PUT <file> –> puts complete file
PROPPATCH <file>
PROPPATCH <file>
UNLOCK <file>

Things started going different from the HEAD command.
anyone had any experience with copy/pasting a file using webdav on W7 (enterprise x64) in Alfresco?

Bob
