Can't change to folder with no list rights

I am using 2.2.5a and want to upload a file to an ftp site
that only allows blind uploads (i.e. I cannot see what
someone else has uploaded)

I log onto the site anonymously and try to change to
the uploads folder.

I get this in the log

Command: CWD Uploads
Response: 250 CWD command successful.
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/Uploads" is current directory.
Command: PORT 192,168,2,2,7,55
Response: 200 PORT command successful.
Command: TYPE A
Response: 200 Type set to A.
Command: LIST
Response: 150 Opening ASCII mode data
connection for /bin/ls.
Response: 550 .: Access is denied.
Error: Could not retrieve directory listing
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/Uploads" is current directory.

It looks like it changes to the Uploads folder successfully
but when it gets the error retrieving the directory listing
it puts me back to the parent folder. If I try to copy a
file to the Uploads folder I get errors

I think it should stay in the uploads folder even though it
could not retrieve the directory listing. I have tried this
with some other ftp clients and they do work as I expect
them to. It would be great if Filezilla could do this too.

You can try this yourself by trying to upload a file to

Thank you

I tried with FileZilla 3.5.3 (pretty old version) and it works there. CWD is successful, but MLSD fails. Still, the directory stays on the remote directory view. I uploaded a test file and it was successful. So it seems to work.
