Yes, but I can't understand how to repeat this problem in any other way than
with an empty dir. I can make it happen then, but the changes I committed the
other day really should prevent it from happening on non-empty dirs.

The "Connection died, retrying a fresh connect" message is output when the
code thinks nothing was received on a re-used connection but something was
expected, and then it retries the request on a fresh connection.

We fix this problem by making sure that the code doesn't think we didn't get
anything in the request. My previous fix did that for dir listings that have
contents. Or at least I thought it fixed it...
