Apparently it is, because your fix worked very nicely, thank you!
Please mail me off line whether you think this is a bug in ftp or
emacs or both, and I'll send a bug report.

Yes, it still seems to work fine for me too, but in that case the
stray error messages are a bug, and I'll report it.


For all I know, these could be configuration bugs in the Debian

them to both Debian and the upstream maintainers.  Is that the right
thing to do?
