Executable files from Solaris servers

Description

I've connected to 2 or 3 different Solaris servers and have
noticed the same problem on all of them: any
executable files in the file listing have an asterix at the
end of the name, for example: myscript.pl*

It is of course normal to see an asterix following files
that have the execution bit set, since this is the way ls
will often display such files, so that they can be quickly
identified in a long listing.

However, the fact that the asterix is appearing in the
Filezilla listing seems to confuse Filezilla, since any
attempt to download these files will fail.

The following is an example of the error I'm describing,
pulled from the filezilla log window:

Command: GET myscript.pl* c:\myscript.pl* FALSE
Response: /www/cgi-bin/myscript.pl*: no such file or
directory
Error: Download failed

In general Filezilla is a great tool, but the only work
around I've found for this is to temporarily turn off the
executable bit using CHMOD ... which is not very handy
to say the least, but necessary if I want to get at these
files.

I have not seen this problem on Linux boxes, only
Solaris.

Please upgrade to the latest version. FileZilla 2.1.0 does not
get confused by the type indicators.
