Dot files (.htaccess etc.) not migrated

    I migrated websites from plesk 9.5 to 10.0.1 on a new server. Both with Centos 5.
    I found that all dot files like .htaccess, .passwd or any other dot file, are not migrated to the new server. The same problem with plesk 10.0.0.
    I think that this is a BIG problem.

    Is this going to be fixed soon?

    I noticed that ONLY my .htaccess files from the ROOT /httpdocs/ where not transferred
    .htaccess / .htpasswd files out of the root where migrated

    1. .../httpdocs/.htaccess -> not migrated
    2. .../httpdocs/blabla/.htaccess -> migrated

    When we ll see an update or a hotfix for this problem? Its realy annoying. Many web-apps place a rewirte .htaccess file in the root directory. any of this webapps isnt working after migration:( i dont want to copy this files manually!

    hope detailed information helps to get a bugfix:

    PRODUCT, VERSION, OPERATING SYSTEM, ARCHITECTURE
    PLESK, 10, Ubuntu 10.04, x64

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION AND STEPS TO REPRODUCE
    Migrate a domain with a .htaccess file in httpdocs folder (not a subfolder), this .htaccess (or any other file starting with a dot) is not migrated!

    ACTUAL RESULT
    the .htaccess file is lost on the new system

    EXPECTED RESULT
    the .htaccess file should be migrated correctly to keep web-apps working after migration

    ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    source server for migration: Plesk 9.5 Ubuntu 8.04 x64 (but this problem is system independent)

    Workaround: use rsync transport option on migration start page.

    That rsync option does not help, .htaccess is missing.

    Plesk 10.1, migrating from 9.5, both Centos 5.
