Using WinSCP2 version 2.3.0 build 146

I just got an assert failure in WinSCP2 when I tried
to copy a couple of files from a unix system back to
my windows box; I'm pretty sure that it is because
the Unix filenames have a ":" in them.
Here is exactly what I did:

Connect to the remote unix system;
Navigate up to /tmp
hold down "CTRL" and select 2 files, drag them across to the Windows pane.
The filenames are:

On releasing the mouse button immediately up pops
the assert dialog box.
Assertion failed: File, file C:\Martin\Projekty\WinSCP2\components\UnixDirView.cpp, line 730

Renaming the files to not have the : in the names has
eliminated the problem.

Hope this is of some help, regards

Unless you encounter same problem with latest release, it is not interesting for me. I'm not going to fix version 7 months old. I hope you can understand this.
