I have no access to a VAX any longer (for 15 years or so), and from
reading the sources in ange-ftp.el I cannot find the problem.

Could you, please, apply the following:

(require 'ange-ftp)
(require 'trace)
(dolist (elt (all-completions "ange-ftp-" obarray 'functionp))
  (trace-function-background (intern elt)))

Then rerun your test and show the contents of the buffers

  *ftp ...*
  *trace-output*

Check the buffers, that they do not contain sensitive information like
your password, before sending.
