I believe these problems are fixed in later versions.

What do you mean by "navigate the directory structure"? Are you using the NetworkExplorer Servlet or Davenport or something like it? If so, is that "certain point" always the same? Perhaps it's a permissions problem?

I would rather you find out what's wrong with the latest version. I can give you an old version but I will not help you debug problems with any versions other than the latest.
