When I paste a FTP URL with escaped spaces into the global queue, the escaped
spaces in the last component of the URL path will not be unescaped. In other
words, when SmartFTP sends the file or directory name to the remote FTP server,
it sends '%20' instead of a space as part of the file name. Note, that this only
happens with the last component of the path. Spaces in directory names in front
of that last component are unescaped correctly. Also note that this may happen
for other escaped characters as well and that it may only happen when the last
component contains a dot.

Example (confidential information was Xed out):

When pasting this URL

ftp://user:password@XXX.XXX.XXX.XX/home/u...th%20spaces.txt

into the global queue, the transfer will fail and the following will be logged
(the directory 'dir with spaces' does indeed exist and in that directory there
is file a file called 'file with spaces.txt'):

Resolving host name XXX.XXX.XXX.XX...
Connecting to (XXX.XXX.XXX.XX) -> IP: XXX.XXX.XXX.XX PORT: 21
