Default Direcories that begin with a space

Flash does not seem to like directories that begin with spaces (as well as really odd ascii chars...)
Heres is a raw directory list (I quoted the spaces to make it eaiser to see):

total 14
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Aug 14 11:07 " "
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Aug 14 11:07 " "
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Aug 14 11:08 " ."
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Aug 14 11:08 " fdsafdsa"
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Jun 13 21:46 XXX
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 1024 Aug 13 21:06 XXX1
drwxrwxrwx 2 # # 512 Jun 13 21:47 XXX2

Now on flashes directory list,
"XXX"
"XXX1"
"XXX2"
"fdsafdsa"

it strips all the spaces, which make " ." into "." and then it of course does not display it, " fdsafdsa" becomes "fdsafdsa" which does not exist.

FlashFXP does not and will not support folders/files that start with a space.

Is there no plan to include it in future releases? Or is their major diffrences between diffrent ftp servers and the way they list spaced dirs? (ncftp is really the only client ive seen that seems to handle odd dirs properly)

No there is not. The FTP listing format was not designed to allow for file names that start with a space, the list format is so loose that some ftp servers have multiple spaces between the date and the file name.
