Wrong routing when downloading some exoticly named files

Reported by: tropicalm Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista


I had an occasion where the remote filename was .\www\automate\LISTE.csv, and it created a local folder ./www/automate/LISTE.csv to accomodate it...

I agree that Windows wouldn't like to welcome this file as is, with that filename that is, but putting it into another folder is worse. Maybe a middle solution could be negotiated? Like replacing unauthorised characters with '_' or ?

Which version of FileZilla are you using?

I tested this using FileZilla 3.5.3 on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.

Subdirectories are created when "Filter invalid characters in filenames" is disabled in the transfer settings. When enabled, the backslash is properly replaced by the given character.
