Thorsten, background login is useless when you want to log in with a
password.  Why?

Because many FTP servers to which you may want to log in with user/pw

What would be worth the effort is logging in anonymously, and if it is
possible, keeping the connection around while prompting the user 

(o) Log in anonymously
( ) Log in with a user account
    User name [                   ]
    Password  [ **********        ]

Where "Log in anonymously" would be selected if anon login was
successful, and greyed out + deselected if anon login wasn't possible.
