RFC959 does not dictate a particular behavior to which FTP server
implementations must conform when handling the LIST command on nonexistent
files. Therefore ProFTPD's current behavior is not necessarily a bug; in
this case your client needs to handle both cases. In fact, I would argue
that sending an 4xx error response code is better than a 2xx response
code, indicating success of some sort.
