Default VFS network mounted device won't show if empty

Tested on ioFTPD v5.6.3r
OS: WinXP Sp1 (both computers)

Playing around with some old hdds in old computer and mounting them on this computer.

Fresh formatted, empty drive mounted in windows:
net use x: \\\d$

"X:\" /driveX
"X:" /driveX

This mount will NOT show up in VFS.

However, if I create an empty dir on that drive the mount point will show up in VFS.

Also.. net use x: \\\d$\newdir

"X:\" /driveX
"X:" /driveX

This one will be shown in VFS, even if that dir is empty.

d1 said that mounting HDDs isn't a good idea (u'll see Recycle Bin folder and some more like u had problems with dekstop.ini) so probably this was just a check against those mounts? Not sure, just a wild guess here...

It's likely to be an issue with some api call - and I don't feel like going through all the code for such non-issue. Mounting root of drive is always a bad idea, and should be avoided.

Possible work-around: create a file called .ioFTPD.dummy to the root of each drive.
