ange-ftp-insert-directory fights with ange-ftp-file-symlink-p

Subject: ange-ftp-insert-directory fights with ange-ftp-file-symlink-p

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, X toolkit)
 of 2003-05-25 on csfac007.unbc.ca
configured using `configure  --prefix=/ld1/local'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: en_US.ISO8859-1
  value of $LC_CTYPE: en_US.ISO8859-1

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

ange-ftp fails when you run find-file on an ange-ftp symlink to a
directory, where the symlink (on the remote machine) resolves to an
absolute path name.  The problem occurs because both
ange-ftp-insert-directory and ange-ftp-file-symlink-p call
ange-ftp-replace-name-component, resulting in two copies of the /...:
part of the file-name.

The following patch seems to cure some of the problems.

               (ange-ftp-ls file switches full))))

I have only tested this for a few cases using unix-to-unix ftp.  I do
not understand the ange-ftp code well enough to know whether some of the
other uses of ange-ftp-replace-name-component may cause the same
bug.  At least some of them seemed provably harmless.
