Description Olivier Vitrat 2008-02-23 19:29:28 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

Reported in Debian BTS at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=451383

When I try to access FTP with KDE the program connects OK, but when
trying to transfer any files (ie. "Save as" in Kate, "copy" with Krusader
or Konqueror, etc.) the program displays a window to enter username
(inactive field) and password again. The username is shortened, and part
of it is replaced with "...". To me this happens when I use cPanel hosted
FTP accounts, which feature usernames of "id@my.domain" form, so the entire
URL looks like "ftp://dl@my.domain@ftp.my.domain", and the first @ is
automagically converted to "%40". The problem exists at least in this
version of the library (3.5.8.dfsg.1-4), if I force to use 3.5.7 from
backports.org it's OK, the only packages changed include this one and
kdelibs-data. The problem existed on 2 architectures (amd64 and i386).

Here the same, but only if the username@servername is very long (about 60 characters)
