This still does not ring true to me. MacOS X FTP server software will
follow the FTP protocol.

It is quite some time ago that I experienced this, but in my
experience it was Finder, and I recall using other file managers on
Mac OS X that did not destroy-replace folders.

What FTP client are you using? Finder? Or are you using Finder locally
on your server?
