Crash on renaming files immediately after upload

Setup: version 3.82, Sftp and Norton style, WinXP Pro, Textpad as external editor

I have worked with a server reading (and caching files) lately, so I have created test files, and uploaded them. Every time I make a small change to a test file, I need to rename it so the server will make a fresh fetch instead of using the cached copy. So my workprocess is pretty much the following:

1 Open a file for edit
2 Do some changes
3 Close file and save changes
4 Rename file
5 Test file on server
6 Rename file
7 Open the file for edit
8 Save changes
9 Test file on server
10 Go to 2

In step 4, WinSCP often shows the following message in a popup
"Invalid access to memory"
How often depends on timing, if I wait long enough (till upload is properly finished and then a second more) it never happens. It seems to happen mostly when the renaming happens at the same time as the file is being uploaded or being closed on the server.

Sometimes there is just one popup, sometimes there is 2 or 3, and sometimes a cascade (I need to hold escape in for 10+ seconds to close them all - possibly one per file in the directory).
Sometimes the filenames in the directory blank out after this message, sometimes all of them, sometimes just a few.
Sometimes WinSCP disappears without a trace after these messages, and sometimes it crashes (is caught by the debugger on the system)

Attaching the start of a (custom built) crashlog, I'll upload/mail the full one if needed and told where to.

Re: Crash on renaming files immediately after upload

Thanks, I'll check it. Just to be sure, I guess you are using editing mode Multiple files, use background transfer to upload changed files, are you?
