file upload using libcurl fails for filenames containing '#'

Hello,

I have the following problem in uploading files to a remote site using
libcurl:
If the file, I wish to upload, contains a hash sign ('#'), the system
ignores any character after the '#' and stores the file under a wrong
filename.
I use AIX 6.1 TL 06 SP 02 as operating system.
My curl Version is 7.21.3-1 .
I use the actual RPM version from
http://www.perzl.org/aix/index.php?n=Main.Curl .

Here an example perl program:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use lib "/usr/local/site_perl/aix";
use lib "/usr/local/site_perl/common";
use WWW::Curl::Easy;
my $curl = WWW::Curl::Easy->new();
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_FTP_RESPONSE_TIMEOUT,30000);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10000);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_LIMIT, 1000);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_LOW_SPEED_TIME, 180);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_USERPWD,"xxxxxxxx:yyyyyyyy");
$curl->duphandle();
my $infile = "/tmp/32864.724.724.22.savf";
open (my $fh,"$infile");
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_INFILE,$fh);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_URL,"ftp://<hostname>:21/QSYS.LIB/PMR32864AA.LIB/
ABC#22.SAVF");
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_VERBOSE,1);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_UPLOAD,1);
$curl->setopt(CURLOPT_NOPROGRESS,1);
my $rc = $curl->perform();
print "Return-Code: $rc\n";
my $msg = $curl->errbuf();
print "ERR: $msg\n";
$msg = $curl->getinfo(CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL);
print "CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL: $msg\n";
$msg = $curl->getinfo(CURLINFO_RESPONSE_CODE);
print "CURLINFO_RESPONSE_CODE: $msg\n";

And this is the result:

* About to connect() to <hostname> port 21 (#0)
