I suspect (but can't test on 21.1) that to reproduce the problem you
need to have something like

   (setq dired-listing-switches "-alF")

With these switches, dired assumes (in dired-move-to-end-of-filename)
that directories will have a trailing slash, that it deletes. Now, you
could say that this is a bug in the ftp server, since it isn't
respecting the "-F" switch (older versions of wu-ftpd did). Still,
if you tell ange-ftp that this is a dumb-unix-host, it will use dir
instead of ls, but dired will still strip off the trailing character.
