Don't know, because I'd have to create new install floppies first..

But I don't think this patch would fix things.. I don't see any
logical flaw there. ftpPassive() just checks that the toggle is
set to the right value -- it doesn't necessarily do anything.

The only way I can see that PASV would be sent immediately followed
by PORT is due to incorrect logic in the installer (or possibly a
bug in libftpio's parsing of the 227 reply).
