I am the guy who wrote the bug report. I have found what is
happening. The server I was connecting also has locale to
"es_ES". See the difference in a "ls" in a ftp session:

With LANG="C" (in the remote system):
-rw-r--r-- 1 1001 0 3125465 Mar 14 23:27 ls-lR.gz

With LANG="es_ES":
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root sys 585 3 Dic 1999 .xftprc

See the difference? The day and month are swaped, and the
month names are different. Look at this in ftpfs sources
static char* months[] = {"Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May",
"Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"};

I suggest to add an argument to ftpfs for selecting the
locale in the remote system, change the "months" string
accordingly, and, if locale says so, swap the month and day
possition when reading ls's output.
