You guessed right, this is what is happening :)

I adapted my repro command like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
emacs -Q --eval '(find-file "/ftp:address@hidden:/")'
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And obtained the listing... So maybe the bug is only exhibited with this
particular FTP server ('primitive ftp' from F-Droid on Android).

I just tried a second FTP server (the one included with Amaze, a file
manager available for Android on F-Droid), and found it exhibits the
same problem as with 'primite FTP' (I get a blank buffer instead of the
dired listing).

Maybe the problem only happen when attempting to use an FTP server on

Thank you!
