I appreciate it.  This bug seems to be very recent.

The log shows that mc thinks that it's in the root directory on the ftp
server, but in fact it is not.

I can reproduce this problem with wu-ftpd 2.6.1 on RedHat 7.2 in the 
default configuration when logging is as a ordinary user.

Debugging shows that the result of ftpfs_get_current_directory() in 
vfs/ftpfs.c is assigned to SUP.home, but SUP.home is never used after 

It's clearly a bug and will be fixed.  The workaround for now is to use 
the full path, i.e. you should enter this in the "FTP Link" query:
