tramp/ange-FTP fails to read Windows NT directories

From: Sebastian P. Luque
Subject: tramp/ange-FTP fails to read Windows NT directories

User-agent: Gnus/5.110006 (No Gnus v0.6) Emacs/22.1.50 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Trying to access the following Windows NT ftp server through
tramp/ange-FTP fails:


http://win-builder.r-project.org has a brief explanation for connecting,
which says we should connect with passive ftp in binary mode (I don't
understand what this means).  The following appears in *Messages*:

Listing /address@hidden:/...done
Doing CD... [44 times]

and I can't get any further with debug-on-error set to t.  I can interact
with that directory from a browser (konqueror) at
ftp://win-builder.r-project.org without problems.  I'm told that the
problem seems to be that ange-FTP doesn't understand Windows NT directory
listing format.  Logging in from the shell gives:

$ ftp win-builder.r-project.org
Connected to win-builder.r-project.org.
