I've been using Jaikoz's "correct filename/foldername from tags" feature to clean up a ton of old mis-tagged and mis-named music files, and it's generally awesome. There's Just One Thing...

I run a mixed MacOS and Linux environment at home, and that comes with some weird tradeoffs. Under linux, "/" is a directory separator, and you can't ever use it in a filename. Under MacOS, the same is true of ":". Presumably if I were to throw Windows into the mix, I'd have similar problems with "\".

Right now, it looks like Jaikoz just silently discards impossible characters from file and folder names when it tries to save files or folders. That's a good default, but I'd love to be able to set up something like the word replacer manipulator, but for filenames instead of tags. e.g. in my circumstance, I'd have a filter that replaced / with \, and replaced : with -. Then for bonus points I'd replace " " with "_", because http servers do ugly things to filenames with spaces in them.

Would this be difficult to implement?

Is the folder a symbolic link ?

Jaikoz currently ignores symbolic links to prevent recursive loops when loading files and to deal with an issue on Linux with remotely mounted file systems with non ascii characters in the filename which are not translated properly when the file system is viewed as a remote file ystem. 

Aha, yeah, that's done it: /project/music is a symlink to /usr/local/project/music. Using the base directory name fixes the problem.

Pruning symlinks during your directory search makes sense, but you might want to make an exception for the base of the tree, or at least log an error when you're skipping a symlink.
First time trying out jaikoz, and I suspect I'm doing something stupid here.

first off, the environment:

CentOS Release 4.5
Linux mediabox.local 2.6.9-67.0.22.plus.c4 #1 Wed Jul 23 17:34:19 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
java full version "1.6.0_07-b06"

I fire up jaikoz, hit the "open folder" button, select the top of my music tree, and... nothing happens. The "loading songs from filesystem" dialog box shows up for a few seconds, and then it vanishes and there's nothing populated.

In the logs, I see:

And that's just not right:

[root@mediabox /project/music]# find . -type f |wc -l

All of the files in /project/music are readable by the user jaikoz is running as... so what gives?
