That's good news. I haven't had a chance to look at DirSyncPro yet. I've
been up to my *ss in alligators on a production project and haven't even
been able to read the documentation.

Thank you for posting this information.

Problem solved! It turned out it was something rather unique to our
environment.  We use X2Go based virtual desktops (www.x2go.org) for VDI
running on Linux-VServer (www.linux-vserver.org) guests.  We are
synchronizing user directories on their physical machine which are
mounted into their virtual desktops via sshfs.  To prevent all users on
shared systems from receiving popup notifications whenever removable
media is inserted, these mounts are made in /tmp and a symbolic link is
made back to ~/media.  Because it is really a symbolic link, we had to
change our synchronization job from skip symbolic links to copy them as
files.  Once we did that, all seemed to work.

I'm glad to see that you got your issues with dirsync pro resolved. I'm still sticking with unison-gtk for the time being, but I really should get off my duff and investigate dirsync pro for the eventuality of unison being dropped from the repositories and / or dirsync pro being added to them.
