FTP "get" and "list" tasks fail

To start with I could use some data. 
 
As you appear to be in the UK, are you in a position to do a little experimenting, contacting

several different FTP servers there with commons-net to see where the problems lie?  Are only

AIX servers affected or are regular unix servers affected too?  Are all AIX servers affected
or 
are some affected and some not? 
 
That would be most helpful.  I need to know two things.   
1. Is the FTP server's listing format determined by its locale in any determinable way?  

2. If it is, is there any way to determine that locale from the FTP process. 
 
If, as I suspect the answer to both of these, but especially #2, is negative, then the only
way 
to determine this automatedly would be trial and error.  And once you expand the scope of
the 
problem to cover not only the date format, but also the language of the locale for the month

names, the combinatorial possibilities start to overwhelm.
