Indeed.  The reason is that `ls /pub/Quotes/quotes.el/.'
does not return an error:

Doing a `cd /pub/Quotes/quotes.el/' does return an error, tho.
Ange-ftp sometimes does such a `cd' before doing the `ls', but only if
the directory name contains spaces.

Should this be considered as a bug in the FTP server ?
Why is ange-ftp not always doing a `cd' first ?
Efficiency ?  Fear of special FTP servers that do not allow such a `cd' ?
