Indy GURUS,

I have a FTP client process implemented, which iterates thru a list of
FTP servers, and pull down various data files.

However, when I attempt to perform a "IdFTP.List" on a given FTP
server, the following error surfaces:

[ An exception was raised on the server: SelectQuery. Value for
WideString Parameter "DIR_LIST" too long ]

Using FileZilla, I am able to view the given directory list with no
problems.  The difference I notice is that the problem FTP server has
MANY files in the given directory.

I presume this is a bug.  Has this issue been fixed?  Where can I find
the patch?

Regards,
Monte Carver
