Cannot detect timezone

FileZilla always shows that the server's file's timestamp is somewhere in 1970. I'm using SFTP and am using FileZilla 3.3.2

I know that this issue is reported several times before and the main reason is "Broken server" (as in the issue #4134, #4518)

However, I found that FileZilla 2.2.23 (which has no timezone autodetection) has no problem in reporting the timestamp.

I know that there's no problem in FileZilla's timezone autodetection and it's only the server's problem. However, as we cannot change FTP server's configuration, is it possible to disable FileZilla's timezone autodetection so that it can be used with Old/Bad FTP servers?

There are two ways to check remote file time. FileZilla 2.x used a different method than 3.x

Both these ways are fully standards compliant, so it shouldn't matter which method is used. Your server however is broken and only supports one method, failing to support the other.
