lftp bug: mirror [-R] didn't work with sftp connection

$ lftp sftp://usr@addr

I can mget or mput files with sftp connection. However, when it comes to 
directory operation, lftp always failed.

Both `mirror abc` to download whole directory or 'mirror -R abc' to 
upload whole directory didn't work. The former one stuck at 'mkdir abc' 
while the latter one stuck at 'cd abc'. So i guess it's some bugs of 
operations on local file system.

Some more information on another two conditions.
1. `sftp usr@addr`
I can use 'get -r' to download whole directory.

2. 'lftp someusr@another_addr'.
When i used lftp to connect to normal ftp servers instead of sftp ones, 
`mirror` worked.

Can someone reproduce this problem?
