Symptom I get s"Error listing /home" Message when trying to read and/or connect to remotes.
Version used Winscp (Build 177)
Description The 'more' section of the error dialog reveals that the remote obviously answered with a line, summarizing the number of bytes in the directory. Since the computer is located in germany, the first line returned is something like 'insgesamt 4096'. Since 'insgesamt' (totals) can not be interpreted as a access-rights string, WinSCP stops reading further entries.
Proposal just ignore additional lines that cannot be interpreted and store them. Display the remaining entries as usual. Using a non-obstrusive method (flashing icon? definitely no popup) inform the user that there was additional information that didn't make it into the official summary. Display the additionals on demand
