Bug Description

I tried to push to a dir that had this folder structure in it (which I, for some reason was not able to delete from the server):


There were no other files, just the above folders.

I ran:
/var/www/pdt $ bzr push --use-existing-dir

and go this error:

Using saved push location: ftp://......
bzr: ERROR: exceptions.UnboundLocalError: local variable 'dir_to' referenced before assignment

It turned out that "easy" was perhaps a bit optimistic (the patch is fairly small, but identifying the correct thing to do was surprisingly tricky), but I have proposed a fix for this now.

I was running bzr push http+webdav://someserver --use-existing-dir --create-prefix

using Bazaar (bzr) 2.1.0dev5

Hmm, you're somehow getting a NoSuchFile exception from br_from.create_clone_on_transport despite using --create-prefix.

I've pushed up a trivial improvement to reveal the underlying NoSuchFile error, because it's not immediately clear to me how this case can happen, but giving the NoSuchFile error is at least going to be a touch more informative than the UnboundLocalError. We already do this for the FileExists case as part of the original fix for this bug report. The branch is <lp:~spiv/bzr/br_to-again-423563-2.0> (branched off lp:bzr/2.0), and a direct URL for the diff is <http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~spiv/bzr/br_to-again-423563-2.0/diff/4730>.
