In addition to being unable to understand the problem discription,
it is most possible that I would not be able to find the solution. Since
the program hangs, it might first be worth to verifing local directory
permissions, then use strace(1) for more clues (and, yes, I agree! ncftp
is using ncurses and in all likelihood tracing it will not be gratifying. )
If the reget command to ftp(1), or the get -C of comand of ncftp(1) will
not be of much help and you would rather try fresh with one more ftp client,
there is also sftp. It is a new ftp client uploaded few days ago.
