The first button version could be turned into an acceptable layout 
by aligning the 'Login In as User' button with the password field 
and making the Cancel button same width as other buttons.

Allthough I brought up the button alternative, I now think that 
we're making the mistake of designing for the rare special case, 
while we should concentrate more on the norm. Using a 3rd button 
leads to lining them up verticaly, because otherwise the relations 
can't be communicated clearly (and space efficiently). 
But having only the Cancel button in the bottom button row doesn't 
feel right.
Having a mostyl disabled control for the anonymous option 
is not a good thing. I would rather have no trace of that, when 
the option is not given. But then again Elements that might be 
present or not are hard to deal with in layout, since we don't want 
drastic changes.

How many ftp sites are there, that allow both anonymous and 
non-anonymous access?
For the rare special case it might be ok to use an additional dialog, 
just asking which kind of login to use. The username/password dialog 
could be kept clean by this way.
