    It's been slightly over a week. No response yet, @IndianaBones.

    @IndianaBones @rIKmAN @Catastrophe
    Ticket was marked as solved.

    Essentially program_directory and subdirectories are protected even with sandbox unchecked. Stupid if you ask me. What's the point of making it appear the sandbox is optional if you're still sandboxed? Oh well, I guess I'll just use Samuel's File Manager extension.

    Yeah I agree that’s a stupid reason catering to the possible idiocy of the lowest common denominator.

    Let’s ban knives because some people use them to stab other people.

    Thanks for the follow up @nacho_chicken.

    My problem with it is that there's already lowest-common-denominator protection-- the enabled-by-default sandboxing.

    Wow. This is pretty lame. I was genuinely excited when they decided to introduce the option to opt out of sandboxing. This might as well not be an option now.
