Sub-folders are already ignored, because they're only looked at when named after a category.
Still, I'm a bit puzzled because a file must have an extension .nzb .zip or .gz to be ever looked at.
How are these files called on your system?
Do you have an example?
I'm not the OP, but I use a Mac and I also see this issue. Say that I have copied a .nzb file from my Mac to the watch folder on the linux box that sab runs on. Then if I do
in the watch folder, I'll see
which is the .nzb file, and I'll see
which is not really a .nzb file. (Not totally sure what it is. "Resource fork" maybe? Nothing that sab needs anyway.)
So sab gets confused and throws an error message. No harm results; it's just a message.
As far as I know there's no way to disable this (arguably) broken behavior on the Mac side of things. But if you could just make it to where sab ignores all files whose names start with a . (dot) in the watch folder, that would fix this behavior.
