Cannot do anything with folder – not even open it to see it's contents

I've got a folder on my FTP server, with a space as name. It is impossible to access this folder using FileZilla Client. It looks like FileZilla takes the last modified date in a weird format (Jan 18 15:38) as "name" (and doesn't show anything in the "last modified" column), so the folder is "not found" when I'm trying to do anything with it.

I hope you can fix this annoying bug...

Unfortunately this cannot ever be fixed. Your server still uses LIST for directory listings, which uses a totally unspecified and often ambiguous listing format. Adding support for your server would mean breaking support for other servers.

You need to upgrade to a proper server that supports the MLSD extension which uses a well-defined, easily parseable listing format which has been designed to solve problems like this.
