Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28760
Does not show directories in folders without files in them, and often does not show even with files

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)
doing an ls does not list directories correctly. A source patch has been
available for some time now and is available at the url given (The url to
the fix should be good indication of the problem). This is in version
6.6.1-6 which is the version in RH 7
Steps to Reproduce:
1.ftp to localhost (or anything running this)
3. Issue an ls command
Actual Results: Either No files if no files were there, or listed the
files but no directories.
Expected Results: Uh....duh...list everything without having to do an ls
-l command to make the directories appear
Uh....none required...this is a bug, which has even been acknowledged by
the authors, and a fixed RPM should be distributed via the RHN up2date
No, it isn't.
The patch just adds an option to emulate the broken behavior from older
See item 11.26 of the wu-ftpd FAQ (http://www.wu-ftpd.org/wu-ftpd-faq.html).
We're not going to enable broken behavior by default.
