The patched version of Emacs+EmacsW32 comes with an ftp programs that
has worked better for me than the one included in Windows. I have got
no bug reports on this, but it might be that program that is at fault
here. Or it might be some changes I have made in that part of Emacs.

Could you please first try starting from

   emacs -Q

and reproduce the problem? That will use the ftp program that comes
with Windows.
