Build verison I am using : Version 5.9.2, Build 6958.
However this has been there for a long time, but I am only reporting it now as i was expecting it to have been already reported and "will be fixed" in future releases.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Establish a remote SCP to any linux server.(i only have linux servers, so have to mention this)
2) Try to do a change directory on the session to which we have opened.
the directory we are trying a cd to should have prefixed /trailing spaces in the path (normally possible since we copy paste paths which are huge)
Example : correct path "/home/spn221" , path given "/home/spn221 " or " /home/spn221"
In both these cases , the session hangs and have to eventually reconnect.
As it is easy to trim spaces which are before or after a string, i feel this is a bug that can be fixed easily as the side effects are of serious nature or an error be thrown back that the dir is invalid.
