I added an attachment to http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/attach/Plugins/CounterPluginDev, it is properly displayed in the table at the bottom, but when opening this attachment, it opens an older/different file/verison. Clicking on manage for that attachment shows only one version of the attachment but the same file under other attachments, see screenshot!?! However, clicking on the header in 'manage attachment' opens the latest version.

I did add this attachment, when twiki.org was running on Cairo, but cannot remember if it was ok at that time.
see also http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/AttachmentVersionConfusion
screenshot of manage attachment:

I have seen this problem several times going through plugins, the file retrieved thorugh viewfile being older than the file in /pub.

Last time the problem was reproducible it was caused by the twiki.org server having run out of file descriptors in /tmp.

Uploading a new attachment with this condition out of the way resolves the problem.

the working link in manage attachment at the top is: http://twiki.org/p/pub/Plugins/CounterPluginDev/CounterPlugin.zip

This seams to be a twiki.org related issue. I would like to challenge if this will ever has a chance to get resolved. And it also seems that it is a while ago this was reported last.

Should we discard? PeterThoeny - you have any intentions of investigating this further? Or should we perheps park it and see if this is gone when t.o is upgraded to 4.0.5. After all t.o is only at 4.0.2.

Setting to waiting for feedback to flag it.


We had some intermittent issues with attachments on twiki.org. I have not seen any similar reports from other TWiki sites. I fixed the few reported cases on twiki.org.

Let's discard this since it does not seem to be an issue with the core code, more with the setup/upgrade of twiki.org.
