I couldn't reproduce this problem with vsftpd 1.1.1 and CVS mc.

I'm not aware of any changes since version 4.6.0 that would affect this
anyhow.  Try "--ftplog" option to see what is going on between the server
and mc.

It can if you specify the port.

If mcserv was broken, I would make that very clear in the documentation
(like it's done for the defunct PC port).  There have been no bugreports
about mcserv since the 4.6.0 release.

It should work.  The code is there.
