 > This is marginaly better - if you have sharp eyes, you might notice a
 little symbol on the folder - but your icons are so small to start with,
 it's hard to see.  You also do not say anywhere obvious what the icon
 means, so I still click on it to see what happens - and it still says
 there are no files in the folder.

 There is always room for improvement. In that particular case we'll see to
 make these overlay icons more crisp.

 > Cyberduck looks like a really useful product for us as we move towards
 S3, but if it cannot handle errors with any sort of common sense approach,
 it's useless.  If I recomended this to my clients I would be spending half
 my life explaining to them that there really are files in this folder -
 and if I said you can see them using almost any other ftp client, they're
 going to ask me why I recommend this one.

 Before writing a rant here it might be a better idea to fix the original
 issue which is described in #5308. You will not have this issue with
 [wiki:help/en/howto/s3 S3] as its an entirely different protocol over

 > Stop being arrogant and saying 'its not our fault', and try fixing it -
 nobody else seems to have a problem with that approach.

 My stand is still that it might be a better idea to fix the root cause and
 not implement a workaround. Time is limited, therefore I first fix my own
 bugs and not implementing workarounds for thirdparty issues that might
 have other side effects and break the protocol specification.
