Hi Ralph and the list.

While installing a new file server I noticed that the "fruit:encoding = native” option doesn’t seem to work properly anymore on 4.15.5.

When set to native, folder icons can’t be created or modified. I can see the icon file being created inside the folder, but the icon doesn’t show up. The folder also can’t be deleted as the Finder says it’s being used.

On an older server recently updated to 4.15.5 the folder icons already there are shown but new ones can’t be created by pasting.

Switching to "fruit:encoding = private” allows folder icon creation again, but I’ve never really used it so not sure what kind of side effects it will create. Native seems to have been the recommendation.
