WinSCP directory listing locks up when I cd to a remotely mounted directory

WinSCP locks up when I try to browse a certain directory on the remote server (a UNIX machine).
The directory is root and I normally have access rights to view this directory, but in WinSCP it just
locks up.

I have a log file.... looking at the file, it does the
listing but gets stuck trying to display the following at the end of the listing and the interface locks up.

< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Listing file "././.ddd".
> ls -lad "././.ddd" ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$status"
< lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 8 Oct 26 16:36 ././.ddd -> ././.ddd
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Listing file "././.ddd".
> ls -lad "././.ddd" ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$status"
< lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 8 Oct 26 16:36 ././.ddd -> ././.ddd
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0

Thanks in advance!

Re: WinSCP directory listing locks up when I cd to a remotely mounted directory

You seem to have symlink pointing to itself in root directory. WinSCP hangs in this case, this is known bug.
