Any directory named with "0" is not visible in a SFTP external storage

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a set of directories which names can be numbered, “0”, “1”, “2”, …, for example in a SFTP external storage
  2. Log into owncloud and go to the SFTP external storage to check the directory in which the new sub-directories with their numeric names were created.

Expected behaviour

The new sub-directories should be visible there in such a directory

Actual behaviour

All the sub-directories with the exception of the sub-directory, “0”, are visible there. Only the sub-directory, “0”, is hidden despite having the same rights as the other sub-directories. Even, the number of sub-directories shown there does not include the sub-directory, “0”. Besides, all the contents of the SFTP are visible with the exception of any directory named as “0”.

this is obviously a bug.

I will create a ticket in the ownCloud repository and link it here.

Thanks for taking the time and writing in here, you are improving the product :slight_smile:
