If it's just unnecessary it does not harm.

comment:3 by toszcze, 15 years ago

No, it isn't just unnecessary - with period I get only list of libraries in a library, not list of members in this library.

comment:4 by Tim Kosse, 15 years ago

I'm not sure what's causing is. Please enable "show raw directory listings" in the settings dialog, restart FileZilla, connect to the server, navigate to the directory in question and attach the entire contents of the message log.

Message log attached.
But I've found something interesting. This problem occurs only when changing directory by clicking in the top frame - clicking in the bottom frame changes directory in correct way. Sorry, but I can't describe this better - screenshot should explain it very well. ;)

Can you attach a log of the "ok" case as well?

Also, directly after connecting it already is in a directory ending with a dot, as seen in the PWD reply.

Are you saying that "foo" and "foo." are different directories? What about "" and ""?

comment:8 by toszcze, 15 years ago

Sorry, but I'm not able to attach a log right now - I'll do this next week.

"" and "" are the same directories, but when FileZilla tries to get a filelist of "" it gets only a list of directories, without files. A list of "" contains files and directories. I can't explain this, because I'm a software developer, not a system engineer.

I was under the impression that 'FOO.BAR:' represents a normal directory and 'FOO.BAR' a partitioned dataset and 'FOO.BAR(BAZ)' a PDS member.

Promised log still missing.
