i'm running on non-debug build this days because a RAM card died so I'm on 128MB only. So, no BT.

but it is always reproducible I believe, so just:

Download eDonkey2000 monolithic from website
search for anything
start downloading
close ed2k
chmod a-w ~/.aMule/Temp
start aMule
amule -> Import tool
import the ed2k files

A partial fix has been committed, so aMule will now refuse to run if the Temp directory is read-only. But what if it becomes read-only while aMule is running?
... we're becoming paranoid ...

Check has been fixed (and now also checks Incoming and ~/.aMule), but still doesnt check during execution ... should we?

actually, i noticed this crash because i mistakenly did chmod a-rwx instead of chmod a+rwx (scrolling through history I went one position too far :P)

while aMule itself handles this permissions change correctly, Importer tool doesn't.

Anyway, a crash is still a crash, so, whatever it is, no crashes should happen with aMule. Agree?

I do not ask to check for permissions on every write task. that' stupid. just to handle the exception silently.
