Delete doesn't work on VMS systems

A delete of a fille on a VMS system fails because the
file version number is missing.
Command: DELE SUPP$DIR:[DIR1.DIR2]XX.X
Response: 550-Failed to delete file
Response: 550 The file specification must contain a
version number (even if wildcarded).
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: PORT 172,20,24,1,4,195
Response: 200 PORT command successful.
Command: TYPE A
Response: 200 TYPE set to ASCII.
The fill file name in this example should be XX.X;3
The display of remote files shows the file name as
"XX.X" but the filetype as "X;3 File".
The VMS command to delete this file would be
DELETE XX.X;* to delete all versions (the expected
behaviour I would suspect in this case).
