Topic "Remote directory listing broken"

Using WinSCP 2.2.0 (build 122), I get the following behavior when logging into a Solaris 9 server:

Error listing directory "/export/home/ericr".
Unexpected directory listing line "drwx------ 91 ericr 6656 Apr 4 16:27 .".
Operation aborted

and I never get the remote directory listing. However, in the log file, it seems to be working, so I suspect a bug in parsing the output of the dorectory list. Here's an example log:

Doing startup conversation with host (shell).

WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
Startup conversation with host (shell) finished.

I get the same behavior in all directories on the system. How can I get the remote directory listing to work?

Thanks!

WinSCP requires group name to be present in directory listing. Please read "Requirements" chapter.

For list of reasons WinSCP cannot parse directory listing and possible resolutions, see documentation.
