Though, now that you mention it, it could be a good idea to use another message "like directory doesn't exist" is such cases. _panic_ ?
yep, it should just report "doesn't exist". these kind of protection glitches are probably lurking in a few places around the code. i think this one is fairly minor, in that i'll be fixing /site commands first, but i'll add this to the list of bugs.
