'nother ftpget gotcha...

In case this scenario isn't yet covered by the latest Squid, our Squid
1.0.20 server just returned an FTP directory page wherein one of the
directory entries was returned verbatim, rather than converted to an
icon/link as per normal.

The reason was that the file length is so large, it runs into the group
name and so cuts down the number of columns by one. :-(

The "offending" entry is the middle one - ftpget just returns it verbatim,
so Joe Luser can't "point 'n' click" to download said file. This can be
seen here:


Has this circumstance been "fixed" in a newer Squid, or is it case of
"tough luck" for the time being?
