ExtMLSTSupported not set correctly on WS_FTP 7.5

Out of some reason the ExtMLSTSupported Member of the SBSimpleFTPS Client seems to be set to false with a WS_FTP 7.5 Server so the server should not support the MLSD command. If I just ignore this and call MLSD things seem to work like a charm.
I'd have to ignore the ExtMLSTSupported value entirely and just blindly call MLSD and pray things work out this way. I wonder if its safe to assume all ftp servers by now support this command.

Thank you for contacting us.

It is likely that the server reports incomplete list of supported features in response to the FEAT command. The best way to handle this is to put the MLSD() call to the try/catch block and be ready to get an exception on MLSD call.
