With Samba, Coollector would work, because Coollector is written with a library (wxWidgets) that can handle the standard Samba protocol, but can't handle the AFP protocol.
wxWidgets, I apologize for having blamed you... I was wrong
Until now, I had never been able to test Coollector with an AFP-connected drive, but according to the feedback from a couple of users, I had assumed that the scanning feature didn't work with AFP. Today, I have connected 2 Macs with a FireWire cable, and mounted the shared drive with AFP. And to my big surprise, the scanning feature works perfectly!!!
I conclude that Coollector works fine with AFP, even though a few users can have problems, problems that are mysteriously solved by connecting with Samba instead of AFP...
Coincidently, Maverick has just been released (it a free upgrade!) and it's supposed to give up AFP in favor of Samba.
