The next release of 'dftp' (v1.5) has been ready for several weeks now, but
wanted to run at least one full test on it before releasing it.  I think I
finally got a full mirror of the system last night and am running the test
as I write this.

The bug you describe has been fixed.  The first one, at least...  I think
the second is just a symptom of the first.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
