Suggestion: "Reading remote directory" - include the directory that is being read

Would it be possible to add a display of the directory path being read when "Reading remote directory" is happening during the login to a site? With the "use last directory" feature, I often don't remember which directory I was in last and some of these are massive. If I saw that it was left in one of these massive directories, I would know to stop the connection and change the configuration.

I didn't want to pollute the window with additional information, most users do not care about. So the path displays only in a tooltip over the "Reading remote directory" message.

I'm sending you an email with a development version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.

Showing Directory as tooltip above Reading Remote Directory

This will work just fine, thank you. Has there been a change to the Esc logic when loading that list; seems like it works a lot better now.
