Topic "Cannot upload empty folders on 5.0.7"

I'm connecting with SFTP, and am unable to upload empty folders to my server. I know it is a strange request, but a lot of the scripts and CMS's I use have empty folders scattered through them. Other FTP programs throw an error and keep going, but since the latest beta it throws an error:

Error creating folder '/public_html/scripts/'.
Can't create directory: File exists

After you press "OK", it creates the folder but aborts the transfer.

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
