The server has 3.0.14a-3sarge11, but I also tested 3.0.24-6etch10 on my 
desktop. Same problem. The weird thing is it can save to a new file, but 
if it tries to overwrite, it can't rename. What it does (like many apps) 
is it saves to a .tmp file, deletes the original, then renames the .tmp. 
It's able to save the .tmp, but then it seems it can't delete the 
original. I even made all the dirs 777, in case unix perms were the 
problem, but that made no difference. Everything works fine in explorer 
and other apps. Only autodesk apps have this problem.
