FTP deploy doesn't work when adding 'application' to deploy settings

I have successfully deployed a .zip file to the ftp server, but I can't unzip it.
This is my settings: (I've dotted out some information)

  - path: \
    name: myapp

    # FTP deployment provider settings
  - provider: FTP
    protocol: ftp
    host: ...
    username: ...
      secure: ...
    folder: test
    application: myapp

When it tries to copy, it tells me this:
Uploading web application "myapp.zip" to FTP server "ftp://ftp...." as "test".
"test" is the folder, it should say "test/myapp.zip" as it did before I added "application" to the deploy settings.

Anyone know what is going on?

    What is your goal here? application makes FTP provider unpacking zip artifact locally and then deploying it file-by-file to remote server.

    Ah, I misunderstood. I thought it somehow unpacked it on the remote ftp server. Nevermind then. The actual error message said the name of some file was too long, but I thought it was something wrong with the settings due to it saying it was uploading the artifacts as "test".

    I have somefolder with some deep folders which are not supposed to be there, removing them probably fixes it.
