TemporaryFileUploadHandler - Windows Permission Error (ErrNo 13)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Karen Tracey
Component: File uploads/storage Version: 1.0
Severity: Keywords: TemporaryFileUploadHandler
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


When I upload files with the TemporaryFileUploadHandler I get a Permission Denied Exception.

  1. try:

 83. os.remove(old_file_name) ...

  84. except OSError, e:
  85. # Certain operating systems (Cygwin and Windows)
  86. # fail when deleting opened files, ignore it
  87. if getattr(e, 'winerror', 0) != 32:
  88. # FIXME: should we also ignore errno 13?
  89. raise

So what I get is the errno 13.

Here is the full stack trace:

I guess we should ignore errno 13, too.

Owner: changed from nobody to Karen Tracey
Status: newassigned

I've got Windows and this is causing test suite failures I can see on Python 2.3 and Python 2.4 so I'll fix it.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

Fixed by r10396 on trunk, r10397 on 1.0.X branch. (Don't know why it didn't auto-close itself.)
