YES, I have read the FAQ. NO, that's not the problem.

I am able to connect using SFTP to the server. There are 2 folders there. I can navigate to the second one, but when I navigate to the first one, I get the "Received too large (117403 B) SFTP packet" message.

It works FINE with FileZilla, CuteFTP and IpSwitch. But it fails with WinSCP.

I ran a low-level trace, there are no extra characters bing printed. I'm guessing one of the filenames is confusing the WinSCP parser.

Please fix. WinSCP is my transfer client of choice, but I can no longer use it.
