If you search the list, this is an issue that has existed for a very long time.  It appears that no one cares.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I am unable to download any file from


I can browse the .old directory but can't start a download of anything in it; picking files from other directories (such as /pub/rancid/) works.

$ wget ftp://ftp.shrubbery.net/pub/rancid/.old/rancid-2.3.3.tar.gz
--2015-08-18 09:22:29--  ftp://ftp.shrubbery.net/pub/rancid/.old/rancid-2.3.3.tar.gz

This is also failing from Chrome in Windows.
