Before Mavericks, if I clicked this URL or pasted it into the Finder's Connect to Server dialog:
The server's "Share" share point would mount as a volume, and the Finder would open a window navigated to "Folder", with "File.txt" selected. We used this methodology to share file server URLs around the office all of the time.
After we installed Mavericks on the clients (keeping 10.8.x on the OS X Server), whenever a client uses such a URL to locate file, a new volume mounts, named after the enclosing folder, meaning a mount point names "Folder" mounts.
Unfortunately, this means for every URL referencing a different directory, new mount points and server connections are made.
Some have reported the issue and it's been declared as working as designed, but Apple hinted that there is now an option being set that changes this, but unfortunately not supplying how to change that option.
Has anyone by chance figured out a way?
