Description

Hello

I am using FileZilla since the 2.x series, and it consistently does not handle symbolic links to files correctly.

If, for example, one tries to download

kubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso

from

ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/hardy/

FileZilla displays the error message:

Failed to retrieve directory listing

and cannot download the file (which is actually a symbolic link to the file

ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/.pool/kubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso).

It also seems very strange to me that it seems to have never occurred to any user as a bug (I did a search for "symbolic" before posting this, but nothing turned up); either I must be missing something important, or my search was not for the right word...
