I'll also follow up that Max pointed out to me that he doesn't think
you can make a dir with a precending space in NT ( atleast via MS
tools ).  My wires are crossed for the day and the signature was to
catch chmod 777 ~ftp crud.

He also had the great idea that the content should be split into 2
parts -

content: "CWD "; content: "/ "; to catch a
lot more possibilities than the original method.
