Hey, you know my issues better than me now! ;) Assuming a combination of patches from you, Carl, Romano, and others correct these (and other) various problems, how much of the FTP scheme handler code is being patchd? 25%, 50%, 75%? Not withstanding the vagaries of the FTP standard / protocol, have we reached the point where a number of FTP related functions should be replaced by a merge of the various patches out there? Or have I underestimated the complexity of the task? I'll volunteer to test anything against the two sites I have access to (the second of which has a subset of the problems identified above).
