leading space in filename->file not found

Description

hi,

if there's a leading space in a filename (the first
char of a filename is a space), filezilla can not do
anything with this file, it shows the name without the
leading space and tries to get or rename,... the file
without leading space, this results in error
message: "no such file" from the ftp server.

There is no way to fix this problem, as directory listings
are not covered in the ftp specification and thus directory
listings are ambiguous. I'm afraid for most listing types it
is not possible to detect filenames starting with a space.

Temporary workaround if you need to get to your files:

In the "Remote site:" field, type the directory exactly, including any leading spaces:

/Volumes/SAN/Data/Users/john/ My stuff
(note leading space above)

This will take you to the directory. You can also use psftp (from PuTTY) to modify the directory names permanently.
