There seems to be another bug. Compare these two directory listings. The second doesn't show all the subdirectories and does show a 0-byte file from 1/1/70 with no name!
Code:
v:\> dir /a:d ftp:

 Directory of  ftp://localhost/4plugins/*

 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  .
 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  ..

Actually it's probably the same bug as in my other recent thread ... data channel closing prematurely. How much data is processed seems to be up to chance!
Code:
v:\> iftp ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins

v:\> dir /a:d ftp:

 Directory of  ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/*

 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  .
 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  ..
 6/13/2013  0:00  <DIR>  NeedsVista
  0 bytes in 0 files and 3 dirs

v:\> dir /a:d ftp:

 Directory of  ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/*

 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  .
 6/04/2014  11:44  <DIR>  ..

As I said in the other related (?) thread, it's still happening today. All the data is arriving, but TCC doesn't show it all. Here are two DIR commands issued about 1 second apart:
Code:
v:\> dir ftp:

 Directory of  ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/test/*

 1/01/1970  0:00  <DIR>
 6/05/2014  0:19  <DIR>  .
  0 bytes in 0 files and 2 dirs

v:\> dir ftp:
