Keep remote directory up to date does not work

I'm using WinSCP 5.1.7 (latest version available) and update function does not work. In dialog log I see that WinSCP detects file changes on my PC, but it does not upload changed files anywhere. Tried different settings to no effect.

I know that such behaviour is somehow related to timestamps, yet I think using timestamps in keep up to date is wrong: WinSCP already detects file changes, so why to compare timestamps/sizes? Just push changes to remote host! At least such option could be added.

P.S. I'm using GUI mode, Win7 x64 Pro, SFTP, there are no errors reported.
