What bugs are there to fix? I might try to fix one or two. PS. I hope that
features that I'll implement will be used by more than 1% people.

One in particular comes to my mind: the fact the timed-out FTP
connections are sometimes unrecoverables. Even clearing them in the
active vfs list is impossible, the only choice is quitting mc - that
hurts. I'm sure FTP features target a lot of users, but no idea how
many of them are facing such issues.

i'm often using the ftp features. But the named issue i'm seein' rather seldom, and if, not by timeout, but by such things as renaming or copying a file on the remote side, which is maybe impossible on some ftp implementations. Yes, timed out connections are an issue if the remote ftp (server) doesn't allow automatic reconnecting or whatever there is happening in the background). Otherwise i usually get an "directory not found" on the remote side, but i am positioned onto the ".." entry and ENTER key reconnects (or whatever it does) and i'm on the higher dir level. No real problem for me. I don't know what really happens in that case, whether mc really reconnects with a somehow cached pw or whatever, but it works for me. All machines controlled by me use the vsftp server.
