Install of v.2 breaks if TimeMachine is active

Wondering why Synergy needs to dive into every mount point or any file system path other than it's own installation path /Applications/Synergy.app as it seems to crash during installation when my TM is running B|

What do you mean by "time machine is running"? Is that during an active backup or simply enabled? I haven't seen that issue, but I'm running 12.6 with Synergy 2.0.11, and I didn't install during an active backup.

installing or even launching whenever a TimeMachine backup SMB volume is mounted it crashes :$

Hmmm. What happens if you turn off TM and simply mount an SMB drive? I bet it's still unhappy. The other interesting test would be to use a native (rather than SMB) target and see if it still tanks.

No, having a AFP volume or a local USB volume mounted ain't a problem...

Properly due to permissions been okay on these, but TM volume is hidden for me as an user and permission not allowed for me but only root/system user(s)...

So we know it's not happening if a generic volume is mounted, just SMB (at this point, via TM). We have two things left: is it just that an SMB volume is present, or does that have to be under TM? This is interesting...

My guess is under TM, as this is most properly what's causing the permission denied, hence ignore volume returning such errors
