Yes, but those longer than (typically) 8 are normally truncated in directory
listings. I tried the latest code and I see what the problem is now. The
libcurl's directory list building code is a bit naive about this problem,
and doesn't truncate anything. The result is a listing that's much different
than, for example, GNU ls -l would produce in the same case.
I suggest that libcurl be modified to produce a listing in exactly the
same format as some common ftp directory listing format (GNU ls -l would be
the obvious choice) so that libcurl client applications can use the same
parsing routines for sftp as for ftp.
