[opencms-dev] WebDAV always pointing to /sites/default (7.0.5)

I think I wasn't too wrong with my previous observations that there's
something wrong with the WebDAV integration.
Whenever I set the default site in the Admin user preferences to site "/"
(in order that WebDAV connects to that location so I can see both system and
sites folders, instead of the default site): after I connect to WebDAV,
disconnect or do something (also restarted my localhost client=server), when
I then log in to the OpenCms workplace again, at some point the default site
of my user's preferences (Admin in my case) is been reset to the
/sites/default), without me doing anything to it!

WebDAV mapping in the Finder and then trying to setup a project in IntelliJ
is therefore unreliable. Also occassionally it cannot new files to the
WebDAV folders. I can open and edit/save files though.

Furthermore I noticed: I created a sibling copy of one of the jsp files,
edited it via WebDAV, saved it, and back in OpenCms, the sibling link was
not there anymore but just two separate copies.
