FileZilla ignores leading space of filename

- A server has a file with a leading space in its filename.
- FileZilla's directory display parses the name, removes the leading space, and displays the filename without the leading space.
- FileZilla is then unable to correctly reference the file by name for file deletion, renaming, etc. as the leading space is "missing" from commands issued by FileZilla.
I have confirmed this behavior by deliberately creating a file with a leading space on my server, and observing FileZilla's behavior, and noting FileZilla's attempts in the server's xferlog.
A bug search showed obscure reports made about this three years ago, but not well described.
