Bug#613068: Could not connect, passive socket

Package: apt
Version: 0.8.0
Severity: normal

Current versions of apt frequently fail to obtain updates from official Debian
ftp archives:

Get: 1 ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main bluez i386 4.87-2 [560kB]
Err ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main bluez i386 4.87-2
  Could not connect, passive socket.
Failed to fetch ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/b/bluez/bluez_4.87-2_i386.deb  Could not connect, passive socket.

This problem occurs in Debian Lenny and Debian Squeeze. Older versions of the
apt tool work ok, and do not give these errors. It looks like some update has
broken the passive ftp support.
