This means that both Tramp and Ange-FTP are present in
file-name-handler-alist, I think.  (Type C-h v
file-name-handler-alist RET to find out.)

That's not good.

Tramp has been changed to automatically invoke Ange-FTP when
necessary.  So I suggest to either use that facility (if it works),
or to disable Tramp completely if you want to just use Ange-FTP
without Tramp.

I think the following code will disable Tramp:

(setq file-name-handler-alist
      (delelete (assq 'tramp-completion-file-name-handler
(setq file-name-handler-alist
      (delelete (assq 'tramp-file-name-handler

I think I should go back to the first bug report where it says that
Ange-FTP failed.
