[REBOL] Error msg from write ftp:// is completely inaccurate

From: princepawn:lycos at: 7-Sep-2000 10:30

>> write ftp://chuck:[chuck--1--170--16--15--136]/crossing/ndtd/chmod-file %user.r
connecting to:
>> print read ftp://chuck:[chuck--1--170--16--15--136]/crossing/ndtd/
connecting to: chmod-file file1 ofile rebol.r user.r ; --- then I telnet to server and chmod 000 chmod-file ; --- thus it is not readable, writeable, execable by anyone ; --- then I try to overwrite it via REBOL:
>> write ftp://chuck:[chuck--1--170--16--15--136]/crossing/ndtd/chmod-file %user.r
connecting to: ** User Error: Server error: tcp 553 chmod-file: No such file or directory.. ** Where: write ftp://chuck:[chuck--1--170--16--15--136]/crossing/ndtd/chmod-file %user.r
; --- as you can see, it is very bizarre for a write command to claim that a file on the remote server does not exist. The real problem is that it cant overwrite the file. But it did not report that. But actually, this is not the fault of REBOL: when I did a manual FTP I got the same brain-damaged error message. But anyway, maybe this will be of help to someone who is trying things with FTP and getting hard-to-believe results with a similar operation.
