Yes, that's correct. But it is way too easy for malicious people to kill a 
Zope-Server that has FTP enabled. They just connect in regular intervals - 
say 5 seconds - and your service won't be online anymore.

That is why I disabled FTP support until I am sure that it will work 
smoothly in a future version.
I just checked the bug reports again and saw the following on :

    Reported Version: Zope 2.1.6             Expected/Fixed Version:

Too bad that this does not seem to be a real problem for the developers. 
The bug is still alive (Version 2.2.2), and I am too dumb to do "real" 
programming in Python to fix it :-(
