DIRED E of a directory via TCP

In Symbolics 3600 Zwei in Release 6.0, IP-TCP 29.0, AISite 9.0,
microcode TMC5-MIC 319, on Lisp Machine Jimi Hendrix:
I was DIRED'ing my directory on su-csli via TCP. I typed "E" on a line
containing a directory. It read the directory as a file.
I expect this means that SU-CSLI didn't tell it that the thing in question
was a directory. Probably the TCP FTP protocol, which is pretty dumb, doesn't
provide any way to convey that information. The Lisp machine can only know
what the foreign host tells it.
