Slashes in file names cause incorrect copy to host

If you use Filezilla to transfer a file with a / in it from a device that supports them in file names, Filezilla will cut the file name apart and create a directory with the first part and name the file the second part.
This was noticed transferring files from an iPod Touch through SSH onto a Windows Vista machine with Filezilla 188.8.131.52.
Seems to be caused since other filesystems than NTFS and FAT allow "/" as a regular character, as they use "\" for directory structure instead. When transferring, the host OS interpretes the character "\" as indicating a directory.
Transferring /remote/myfile\'name.txt to C:\localdir\ will create a directory c:\localdir\myfile\, transfer the file there instead, with the name "'name.txt"
