Filezilla crashes on remote folder deletion

I tried to erase a folder on a SFTP server (long path, with space in it, no special characters) by pressing DEL key. Filezilla asks for confirmation, I confirm, then it makes a few transactions and the crash dialog show up.

What is your operating system? What CPU do you have?

Sorry, I forgot to mention my computer specs :
Windows XP Pro SP2 / AMD Duron 800 Mhz / 256 MB
I am running Filezilla client

In the screenshot, the log has a warning about an encoding issue with your server. What happens if you try to remove some directories containing only files with English filenames?

Yes, you are right, the program doesn't crash when I delete folder and files named with standard ASCII, on the same server.
The problem seems to be more important in fact, I have encountered some transfer (download) issues with files named with some French accent (diacritic), on the same server.
By the way, I tested with an older version of Filezilla (2.2.30) and everything worked fine.

Fix in SVN, will be available in the next version.

Remark: Please make sure to always store your filenames in UTF-8, other encoding are subject to explicit negotiation with SFTP, however most servers do not support that.
