After upgrading from 4.7.0_pre1 to 4.7.0_pre4 the FTP does not work in active mode anymore: <http://www.midnight-commander.org/ticket/1796>
Steps to Reproduce:
Connect to an FTP server in active mode.
Cannot chdir to /#ftp:<server>
The bug was fixed upstream. I made a patch for the package.
Created attachment 211060 [details, diff]
FTPFS active mode fix
Created attachment 211062 [details]
new ebuild to apply the FTPFS active mode patch
It would be nice to include in portage this fix, until the new MC version will be released.
Sorry, I somehow missed this bug.
4.7.0 final is now in tree and should contain the fix.
