Description Tom Wood 2005-11-23 11:56:11 EST
Description of problem: curl doesn't process URL properly if it terminates in a
directory without a trailing "/"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "curl -l ftp://whatever/wherever/blah"
2. see directory listing for ftp://whatever/wherever, not the blah directory
3. be puzzled
Actual results:
Contents of parent directory listed

Expected results:
Contents of directory that the URL points to listed

Additional info:

It seems that the blah is completely ignored; whether or not blah exists (!),
the parent directory is listed unless the URL terminates with a "/", in which
case curl does the right thing.

This "bug" was filed in curl's own bug tracker as well, and I figure that is a
more suitable place:

This problem is being solved in upstream.
