I'm intermittently getting a 'File Exists' error in my logs for code that uses the 'put_dir' method:

550 /VOLUME1/WWW/[path to directory]: File exists
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/ftp.rb:243:in `getresp'

/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/ftp-ext-0.1.4/lib/ftp-ext.rb:30:in `put_dir'
[The rest of the stack trace goes back to the method that called 'put_dir']

When I go to check on the file that was uploaded as part of this error message, the file is present. Which would say to me that there's an error trap on the directory creation code missing. I briefly looked at the gem code and couldn't work out what what going on because it doesn't happen consistently.

Actually, I think I know what's going on here... I have two workers who potentially connect to the ftp server at the same time uploading different images to the same directory which may or may not exist.

My current theory is that they both detect no directory and one of them gets there first and the other worker throws an exception. Still looking into this.

The line in my code that's throwing this exception.

ftp.put_dir(:local => dir_path, :remote => remote_dir, :erase => erase)

I have confirmed that both directories are present at the time of the exception. Perhaps the erase argument is really what's causing problems here.
