Huge Bug: Creating DIRs

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?

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.

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.

I'll release a new version of FileZilla Server which can handle
this bug until tommorrow evening.

Good Morning,

the Bug still exists in the 0.8.6 Filezilla Server version.

In 0.8.6a, it should really be fixed.
