FEAT issue on server.. possible to remove from login seq?

There is an issue with an FTP server for which I have no control over, where I can't successfully complete the connection sequence with WinSCP. I'm connecting with FTP in passive mode, and after turning on WinSCP logging, I see that when WinSCP sends the "FEAT" command, that is when the server connection dies. I verified this using the windows commandline ftp.exe to connect to the server, and when I executed "quote FEAT", the connection died on me.

Is it possible to somehow remove this from the connection sequence? FileZilla is able to connect because it never sends the FEAT command (according to the logs), and so the server admin won't fix the issue on his end.

Here is the log (scrubbed):

No, WinSCP cannot skip the FEAT command.
You should really upgrade your vsftpd server.
