The configuration file "FileZilla.xml" is stored in an incorrect location. Program data files should be stored in the location returned when using the flags "CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA", "CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA", etc. It must not be stored in the same directory as the application itself.
This is particularly important for newer operating systems (ie, Windows NT onwards) that have the basics of user security enabled, it's particulaly important for correct Windows Vista operation.
This is the case in version 2.2.23. I have not checked if this bug is still in place in the new version 3.
