Long ago I pointed out that I had trouble with the w32 native ftp
client. I switched to the alternate ftp client but I also had some
problems with that program.

However since then I distribute the alternate client as part of
Emacs+EmacsW32 distribution. To get it to work for me I think I made
some patches to ange-ftp.el which I include in the distribution.

They are still there and if someone wants to test them and see if they
perhaps should be added some way to Emacs it would be good.
