[Owncloud] Problem with OC_Filestorage_FTP

Hello, list,

Running Owncloud 4.5.2 on CentOS 6.3. Standard install with SQLite.

(I read the Owncloud version from lib/util.php:
> public static function getVersionString() {
> return '4.5.2';        }

I have configured an external folder (on a remote Linux machine) to be 
mounted under an user dir using the OC_Filestorage_FTP. There is about 
40 G stuff in the remote directory.

At first everything looked well. It seemed to me that the whole file 
structure would be copied to files_versions of the user dir and some 
string appended to all the filenames. The files_versions was slowly 
getting bigger. Web login was not possible. On login attempt, I would 
get a php error message (?) saying that the database is locked.

Then the process seemed to stop after about 24 hours, when about 11 G 
was copied. The files_versions was apparently not getting bigger anymore.

When I now tried to login via browser, the files_versions started 
getting bigger again. I noticed duplicate filenames with only the 
version string being different. So now I get duplicate versions of the 
files. And still I cannot login.

What should I do? I have root access to the remote machine. So I could 
also try the WedDAV route.

Anyway, my users want a read/write access to the files, so using a local 
folder mount (with data copied from the remote machine) seemes 
problematic - there would be two file repositories (local and remote) 
and sooner or later we would have version conflicts between them.

I can post more info, if someone asks.
