Avoid Finder problems with mount points
Authored by: tupholme on Mar 15, '03 12:08:47PM

I need to add a hint to my hint! On bug number 3, I have since discovered that the Finder refuses to work with the mount point folders if the containing folder has been opened at all since startup! That's to say that even if it is closed when the script is run, if the containing folder was open previously the Finder will have trouble coping with the change in state of the mount point folders and will not be able to open them subsequently.

Make sure that if you have had the containing folder open you close it before shutdown, otherwise your next mount will be scuppered when you restart and the Finder re-opens the folder!
