Difference between "Publish to FTP" and "Save to FTP" ?

What's the difference between "File -> Publish to FTP" and "File -> Save to FTP" ?
It looks like the same functionality, except "Publish to FTP" gets an illegal path/filename if file comes from FTP.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a file from FTP.
2) Select ""Publish to FTP" - Notice the filename is prepended with "\|"
3) Select another folder on FTP or another FTP site and try to upload. (Upload fail, as it tries to find the file locally)

Publish to FTP is meant to be used with projects. Let's suppose you have a local project where you work on it and when you are ready to release, you press Publish to FTP and you can check/uncheck which files to upload. The editor will remember the date of publishing and next time you click Publish to FTP again, it will automatically check the files that have been modified since then.

Thanks for the bug report, I'll add it to bugs.
