Just wondered if anyone else has run into this. One of my clients pointed
out that FtpExplorer, a free win95 ftp client downloadable at
http://www.ftpx.com/, has an extremely slow ls when connecting to FreeBSD.
Indeed one could grow old waiting for an updated tree after uploading a
file. It doesn't do this when connecting to linux, or sun boxes, and I
haven't experienced any such performance problems with FreeBSD and any other
ftp client software.
