#711 closed defect (fixed)

crashes when trying to enter a new ftp address via Open Connection.

Severity: major Keywords:
Cc:,,,,, Architecture:


I just dicovered that I can crash 2.6.1 everytime by clicking Open Connection and then starting to type an ftp address in. This in on a Macbook 1.83 with 2GB of RAM Mac OS X 10.4.7. If I add the address as a bookmark everything works fine.

This seems to be a Intel specific issue. As a workaround open and type

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck connection.hostname.check false

and restart or use the quick connect field to connect instead.

I am wondering if the same issue also shows when setting up a new bookmark. Any feedback appreciated; please write a short comment to this ticket.

I tried the edit in Terminal, as suggested above, but it still crashes on me.

Same here, the workaround did not work really. Instead of crashing while entering the hostname it only crashed when entering the username, so some improvement.

What did work was to type the text somewhere else (e.g. Terminal) and then to copy-paste it into Cyberduck.

Using an iMac Intel 2.0GHz here.

I still love Cyberduck though...

I still was using the "Open Connection" field though, I only saw the quick connect hint now. When typing into 'quick connect', nothing bad happened.

This seems to be a Intel specific issue.

It's not. I'm on a G4 800mhz dp Quicksilver and have the same problem.

Not Intel specific. I'm on a Dual 2.0 G5 ppc with the same problem.
