Accessing Safari safe browsing cache?


Just created a brand new local repository. This happened immediately when the window for it opened:


Screenshot 2019-04-20 at 15.33.15 .png



[A dialogue-box on top of repository window]

'hg status' failed with code 255:'abort: Operation not permitted: '/Users/oscar/Library/Caches/' 


Ehm, wut? As I closed the dialogue box, it kept reopening for a few times. Should I be concerned?


Kind regards

Ok, it's human error.

Turns out I accidentally made my entire home folder into a repos, so obviously it tried to go through ALL my files, including files with special permissions. I guess the fact the safe browsing cache has special permissions is actually reassuring : )

Note: I thought the name of the repos would be added to the path, when creating a new repos. That's how it happened.

Hi @kraybit,

We haven't had any reports of this before. The 'status' command is used with Mercurial to get the current information about the repository. The error shown is coming directly from Mercurial. Does it still occur if you switch from "Embedded Mercurial" to "System Mercurial" in the preferences?
