Misleading Error: "Connection closed by server"

During long file transfers, the unused browsing connection gets closed, producing an error message in red in the Message log Window:

Error: Connection closed by server

Since the message is displayed in red and listed as "Error", this is very troubling for users who are not familiar with FTP.

This produces bug reports which are then rejected (eg #4130), messages in the forums, and phone calls from worried clueless users.

It would be nice if this message could be

  • not displayed in red
  • not marked as "Error"
  • maybe reworded to make it clear that it's only the browsing connection and that the transfer connection continues normally
