Anonymous ftp - ls hangs

I decided to resurrect anonymous ftp on a server here under Cygwin and managed to get it working again except that when one ftp's and types ls the ls hangs. I search the list and found one person having a similar problem but his question was never answered.

Why is ls hanging and how do I fix it?

Cygwin 1.5.4
inetutils 1.3.2-24

This hangs both under regular ftp and ncftp. ncftp's trace file shows:

But then also hangs. There is an ls process running on the server that appear to be just hanging there.
