This is a client error. ioFTPD sent the right timestamp.
When no year is specified by the ftp daemon, the client should assume the specified day is the latest, in the past.
The latest Feb 28 is 2004-02-28, so your ftp client should show that.
That is, if your system clock is correct (not > 2005-02-28).
Since folder A is also a date in the future, and it was shown as 2005, I would guess your system clock was set to > 2005-02-28...
I tried in FlashFXP and the folder shows as 2/28/2004


FolderF 2004-jan-17
FolderG 2003-mar-15
FolderH 2003-feb-04
FolderI 2003-jan-04
FolderJ 2002-dec-03

Those are indeed bad. iofTPD should have sent years in the dates in the raw listing. I reproduced this behaviour.

Client issue. If ioFTPD sent correctly formated dates, then the client should parse them and show them.
FlashFXP doesn't have a problem showing all the folders with those dates here.
