Huge Bug: Creating DIRs
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||Tim Kosse|

There seems to be a huge Bug in 2.2 (or is it a bug in
If I connect to a FileZilla Server 0.8.5 using
FileZilla Client 2.2 I can create a directory on the
server called "This is a testdir...". On the server the
directory is now called "This is a testdir.." (with
only two dots) and it cannot be renamed or deleted! You
can't change into that directory with FileZilla Client
and you also can't delete it using the client.
You now have an undeleteable directory on the server.
Perfect for script kiddies.
Is there a bugfix/workaround for this behavior?

Here's a way to remove such directorories, enter the following
replace <path> with the full path of the directory, for example
This problem is definately a bug in Windows, apparently
CreateDirectory doesn't parse the directory names correclty.

In 0.8.6a, it should really be fixed.
Looks like a bug in Windows, since it allowed creating a
directory which can't be deleted.
I'm looking for a way to remove this directory.
I now have such a directory on my machine and I can't get
rid of it.
