Filesharing Changes in OS X 10.6.5
I've noticed a couple of changes to filesharing that seem to be associated with OS X 10.6.5. It appears that folders that are shared via ACL, specifically folders on volumes other than the startup volume, are no longer visible via filesharing over the network. This appears to be the case not only for shares over the Internet, but also for shares on computers on the same subnet.
This is a bit of a problem for me because I save a lot of large graphic files to a separate internal drive on my Mac Pro. Those folders are visible to other accounts on the same machine via "Shared Folders" in the Sharing preference pane, but they're not visible to users on other machines on the same network or across the Internet.
