automatic ASCII mode for dotfiles doesn't work

I am using FileZilla client 3.0.1 on Windows XP Pro. I believe the server I'm connected to is running some kind of Debian linux.
The option for treating dotfiles as ASCII doesn't seem to work. I tried downloading a .htaccess file, and it always used binary mode, even when I added htaccess to the list of ASCII filestypes. When I unchecked the dotfiles as ASCII option while leaving htaccess listed as an ASCII filetype, .htaccess files were transferred as ASCII.
In older versions of FileZilla I was able to manually set the transfer mode for each transfer, but that feature seems to have disappeared in the latest version. I for one would like to have that feature back.
