While filezilla does connect to an os2 ftp server
(IBM's supplied server), when filezilla attempts to get
a file listing, if fails:

Status: Connecting to ...

Error: Could not retrieve directory listing

At this point user can't do anything without the
directory information.

For some reason the IBM ftp server doesn't like list -a:

Just disable show hidden files. Not all servers support
this, as the description in the settings dialog of FileZilla
clearly says.
