I cannot see that I have such a symlink

This happens in all directories I have tested. I start in my home
directory, there is a directory called "temp", but that is not visable
through gftp. But if I change in the path field I can cd into that

I made a copy of the cache.XXXX file, edited it (or do you have some tool
for looking into it?) and could confirm that ALL files are listed there.

No warnings. When I go into my home directory it says:

22: Öppna katalogen /local/home/dufberg
22: File handle
23: Läs katalog
23: Filenames (90 entries)      <------- 90 files is correct
24: Stäng
24: OK

There are 90 files, the log says 90 files, but only half of them are

Even i directories with few files the is a discrapancy.
