FileZilla Client Connection lost / reconnection

This has been going on for several releases now and apparently no one has reported it. The client will lose the server connection as normal / expected after a period of elapsed time with no activity. However, the client no longer remembers that state. When you try to change folders, it waits a long timeout period before it discovers that the server is not connected and displays an error message. Only then, when again trying to change folders, does it reconnect and change to the requested folder.
It seems to me that the client should remember when the server is disconnected and do the reconnect automatically when an action is taken; like changing folders. Essentially, it is not my problem the client did not remember the server connection was automatically closed. :) The program used to remember the state of the server connection and reconnect when there was information from the server to get.
