Hi all,

I am getting the message "Invalid argument to date encode" when I try to
  list the contents of a directory using TIdFTP with its full details.

This only happens when I am listing a directory with about 116 files &
folders combined.

I was using Indy 9 and then updated to the latest version of Indy with
SVN. All of this using Delphi 6.

Apparently, the file listing is getting truncated:

-rw-r--r-- 1 user group    43980 May 08  2008 fax000000243.tif
-rw-r--r-- 1 user group    3667 Jan 05  2008 pg_hba.conf
    4096 Apr 17  2008 erl.eomodeld
-rw-r--r-- 1 user group      112 May 10  2008 desktop.txt

So the line that is causing problems is erl.eomodeld. I've tried using
the Linux FTP client and it works great on this and the other directories.

Any idea what I may be doing wrong?
