I apologize for being unclear.
In brief 
- I changed findhref so that it searches HREF= only after A tag - 
  otherwise in my case it always encountered it inside a BASE element and traversed
  the same ftp dir again and again. 
- I added check for '\0' in the beginning of each ftp listing line because in 
  my case they has form "\0<A href="ash/">ash/</A>"
- I added a slash to "latest" because combining " ftp://..../cygwin/latest " and "ash/" 
  by InternetCombineUrl gives " ftp://..../cygwin/ash/ " - not " ftp://..../cygwin/latest/ash/ "
- and two unlinks to delete temporary files produced by geturl
