Error listing PDS members in MVS

I have noticed that when I connect to an MVS host via
FileZilla and attempt to display a listing of all members
within a partitioned dataset (PDS), some of the
members are missing. When I manually log onto the
MVS host and browse the PDS, the missing members
The one thing that all of these 'missing' PDS members
have in common is that they were last modified by a
batch job or outside process, not a physical user/TSO
ID. For some reason it seems this prevents FileZilla
from recognizing that the members actually do exist
within the dataset. If I enter any of the problem
members and manually save the file (thus setting the
last modified user to my TSO ID) the member is
correctly listed in FileZilla.
The mainfraim is running ZOS/MVS...This seems to be
an issue of how FTP retrieves member lists from PDSs.
It can be very frustrating and has caused me a lot of
rework in the past.
Just thought I'd report this as a potential bug.
