  Well, that's what I meant :P

  I could try to look at it if I get time, but..

  Hmm.  As I said, it works much better than the version in the archives
(which segfaults on start) I didn't test it extensively, although I was able
to log into an FTP server and do an "ls".  non-us caused it to hang until
I ^Ced a few times, but dpkg-ftp has the same issue with that server;
I'm not sure what the issue is. (I haven't looked closely at it)  Also,
interactive performance wasn't great (there's some latency with entering
commands and processing keystrokes; I'm not sure what the issue is)

  If you think I should rm it from incoming, I can, but I figure that a
version that can at least display a prompt is a real improvement :-)
