#3152 closed Bug report

Unable to download file containing "&" character

Description

I'm using beta 8 and nightly builds from FileZilla 3 under Ubuntu (GNU/Linux), and I've noticed a bug : I'm unable to download files containing the "&" character. I've been told to report this bug in the bugtracker by codesquid.

FileZilla creates a file without the "&" sign and then ask infinitely whether it should replace it and never downloads the file. Actually, the RETR command contains the filename without the "&", and thus the server responds "550 Failed to open file".

A file without the "&" character gets created and the replace dialog would show up over and over asking for replacing this empty file.

Attached is the log of the FTP session.

Does the file appear with or without the & in the remote file list?

Does the file appear with or without the & in the transfer queue?

It appears with the & in the remote file list
but without the & in the transfer queue (both in local and remote field)

Interesting. Is the ampersand missing already when you add the files to the queue or only after restarting FileZilla?

Right when I add the file to the queue

How are you adding the file to the queue? Using the context menu, doubleclick or by using drag&drop? In the case of drag&drop, what where the source and the target of the d&d operation?

I've just tested each method:

  • when doubleclicking, everything works fine
  • with context menu, everything works fine
  • drag&drop results in the missing "&" and the file not being downloaded

So it has to be related to drag&drop.

Confirmed, I've been able to reproduce this problem.

Fixed in CVS. Problem had been caused by a bug in the used XML library, see http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1600650&group_id=13559&atid=113559 for details. XML is the data exchange format for drag&drop operations.
