The problem:

I have quite some filled folders on my servers. These are directories
with automatic filled in cache files that I never ever want to look inside.

It always happens while dragging something into my site that I
accidently touch such a directory and Cyberduck than wants to look
into that folder. Well, that is a bad idea, then my system hangs for
a couple of minutes, it's so enoying.

I need a preference to switch off this automatic folder opening,
it might be handy for most users, but not in any case.

Please... Cyberduck is so great except this....

When dragging in a NSOutlineView, it auto expands its children too quickly.

As of 46570a7 one can set a property with defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck browser.view.autoexpand false which will disable the autoexpanding of folders in the outline view.

One can write in a Terminal.app window to disable autoexapanding:

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck browser.view.autoexpand false

as i understand, there no plans to put this in place as a preference. is that correct? is there any way you could do that for us, please? (the only reason i ask is that most people don't visit this website and isn't the .plist file replaced on a new installation of the program?)

This should be added as a preference in the advanced pane, I have long had issues with Cyberduck "peeking" inside folders I am merely dragging across. When it peeks and requests the contents of a very large folder, the FTP server takes such a long time to respond that Cyberduck stays locked up (spinning beachball) for several minutes on some occasions.

This is cumbersome since I am not attempting to place anything in that folder -- I have merely dragged by or across it to reach another folder.

I was about to submit it as a new bug when I found this closed ticket.

If possible, it would be nice to see this feature use the Finder preference for spring-loaded folder delay. Personally, I set that to the maximum and use the spacebar when I want to force a folder open.

A simple checkbox as discussed would be fine -- but with the current behavior I'd always leave it off.

After using Cyberduck daily with:

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck browser.view.autoexpand false

I have noticed that CyberDuck is still locking up while it waits to list folders that are dragged across in outline view. This is also noted in Ticket #12142. It may be a good idea to split this ticket into two tasks: 1) fixing the lock up on drag across and 2) A preference to disable auto-expanding or spring loaded folders.
