$ emacs

You call that a bug report?

Say, how do I tell emacs that I don't get out on the net much and
there's no need to load ange-ftp unless I really type something that
smells ftpish?

From the "Remote Files" node of the Emacs manual (indexed by ange-ftp):

|    You can entirely turn off the FTP file name feature by removing the
| entries `ange-ftp-completion-hook-function' and
| `ange-ftp-hook-function' from the variable `file-name-handler-alist'.
| You can turn off the feature in individual cases by quoting the file
| name with `/:' (*note Quoted File Names::).

Next time, try gnu.emacs.help
