I've just tried it. I looks better but still is buggy. It creates
something as:

<A HREF="ftp://ftp.some.host/dir/file with spaces">file with spaces</A>

which it is supposed to create, I think. After clicking on the link you
will get something as:

File Not Found

The requested URL ftp://ftp.some/host/dir/file was not found on this

It should create this:

<A HREF="ftp://ftp.some.host/dir/file%20with%20spaces">file with spaces</A>

When you request ftp://ftp.some.host/dir/file%20with%20spaces you will get
the correct file. 

When you request "ftp://ftp.some.host/dir with spaces" you will get again
the same errror - ftp://ftp.some.host/dir not found. (" with spaces" again
truncated). But when you request
ftp://ftp.some.host/dir/dir%20with%20spaces, you will get nearly the
perfect directory listing, but it has the following title:


But I think it should be

ftp://ftp.some.host/dir/dir with spaces

(this isn't serious - it works, but it can confuse the user - he wants
"dir with spaces" and gets "dir%20with%20spaces").
