Exclamation FlashFXP thinks .tar.bz2 files are directory links!?!?

I'm running FlashFXP v2.1.924 on Windows XP with a cable internet connection.

I'm connecting to ftp://gaosu.rave.org:21 and change to the "/pub/linux/lfs/lfs-packages/5.1pre1/" directory.

That directory contains (what looks like) a list of shortcuts to ".tar.bz2" files.

Internet Explorer can download these files no problem but with FlashFXP, it tries to change directory rather than download the files.

The error message that FlashFXP displays is:

CWD /mnt/3/lfs/lfs-packages/5.1pre1/diffutils-2.8.1.tar.bz2/
550 /mnt/3/lfs/lfs-packages/5.1pre1/diffutils-2.8.1.tar.bz2/: Not a directory.

You need to get these files manually.

Once you're inside of the directory, from the Tools menu select "Manual Get" and enter the filename. i.e. bison-1.875-attribute.patch

FlashFXP will then download the file.

Eek. Is this going to be fixed in a future release?

Getting all those files one by one like that would take ages (I ended up giving up and downloading them all with Internet Explorer).
