The Windows 2000 ftp server provides ftp LIST in that format:

04-04-04  08:17PM       <DIR>          Ventas
01-12-04  03:23PM                80744 Ventas

Date : month - day -year
Hour : hour (AM/PM): minute

When using Mozilla, date and time  are wrongly parsed:

Ventas  	 	03/04/04  	-33:52:44
Ventas 	79 KB 	11/01/04 	-38:58:44

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a FTP server using Windows 2000 in English configuration

Actual Results:  
Date and time are wrongly displayed

Expected Results:  
Parse them correctly

This looks like bug 223422 or bug 206214 (probably the latter)
Using the URLs from those two bugs I don't see any obvious wrong dates.

Using command line ftp:

05-05-04  10:47AM       <DIR>          4_0_2
12-09-02  11:30AM              9501480 AcroReader51_ESP.exe
05-03-04  11:05AM               241664 backoffice.exe

Using Mozilla 1.6:

4_0_2  	 	06/05/04  	78:22:44
AcroReader51_ESP.exe 	9279 KB 	08/12/02 	-41:05:44
backoffice.exe 	236 KB 	02/05/04 	-42:40:44

I assume that is your local ftp server still.  Did you find any wrong dates @ , or any other public URL?
Also, try a newer version of mozilla.  The newest langpack for es-es is 1.7rc1.
