Symbolic Links are not handled correctly

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
FileZilla displays the error message:
Failed to retrieve directory listing
and cannot download the file (which is actually a symbolic link to the file
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...
FileZilla Log: Connection to ftp.mirrorservice.org: trying to download a file via a symbolic link to it, fails.
