Protocol error trying to rename directory on share (Windows host, Linux guest)

Reported by: blaukopf Owned by:
Priority: major Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other


~$ sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000,exec workspaces /ws
~$ cd /ws
/ws$ mkdir a
/ws$ ls -ld a
drwxrwxrwx 1 blaukopf blaukopf 0 2008-04-07 19:16 a
/ws$ mv a b
mv: cannot move `a' to `b': Protocol error

Host is Windows XP, guest is Ubuntu Linux. I am able to read, write and create files and directories on the share. File renaming works, directory renaming does not.

Possibly related:

Stumbled upon the same issue/bug while building a kernel module. Simply worked around it out of laziness by a touch .tmp_versions/x.
