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....

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.
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.
