fzsftp crashes if default remote directory is invalid when using SFTP

Reported by: breyed Owned by: codesquid
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Operating system type: Windows Operating system version: Vista SP1


If the default remote directory for a web site is invalid, the Windows Error Reporting (aka Windows Crash Dialog) appears stating, "SFTP module in FileZilla based on PuTTY's psftp component has stopped working" and the helper process fzsftp is terminated.


- Use this connection info:
Host: frs.sourceforge.net
Servertype: SFTP
Default remote dirctory: /home/groups/s/se/sermonsontheweb/htdocs
- Connect
* Notice the crash.

FileZilla version 3.1.2.

It's just a matter of empathy. It seems the sftp-server subprocess on the server just dies. This confuses fzsftp so much that it kills itself.

Next version will no longer crash, it will gracefully exit fzsftp instead if the server bails out like this.
