Topic "WinSCP hangs on "/" file name"

Author Message


Somehow, there was a file named "/" in a directory on a *nix server belonging to one of my clients. When navigating to the parent directory, WinSCP 4.2.1 froze up. Scrolling was still functional in the remote panel, but no other function worked, and the application had to be killed.

Not seeking a response since deleting the "/" file resolved the issue, but I wanted to put something out there.
