Resilio looses directories after upgrade to username with a dot

Recommended Posts

We have upgraded to linux usernames in format firstname.lastname

A dot is an allowed character in POSIX.

However, Resilio (it;s identity was not changed) stopped finding directories that are attached. I can click to locate the directory but then again after resilio restart they are lost.

This might be a bug as dot in username is not often used.

Please confirm if this should work, as I'm not sure where the problem lies.

What is your exact case? please share exact steps-to-reproduce. Cause just syncing a directory with a dot in its name does not produce any problem and remains in Sync after restart.
