BRS WebWeaver have a dumb bug when trying to access
object, that not existent, with RETR command. Normal 
behavior of ftp server will be print error message, 
but webweaver just locks himself. 

}-------- sample session -----------{

e@some_box$ telnet hostname 21
220 BRS WebWeaver FTP Server ready.
USER anonymous
331 Password required for anonymous.
PASS user@host
230 User anonymous logged in.  
RETR blah         
150 Opening data connection for blah.

}-------- sample session -----------{

Then i just close telnet session with webweaver and
try to connect server with ftp program.

}-------- sample session -----------{

e@some_box$ ftp hostname
Connection with hostname

}-------- sample session -----------{

That's all. Server is locked. No one can login in ftp 
server. If i try to restart ftp server, then in my 
log file will appear following:

}---------- from ftp.log -----------{

21/Apr/2003:17:30:27 - 195.**.***.** - User: anonymous - Disconnected 
FTP Server Stopped
21/Apr/2003:17:30:38 - ERROR: FTP Server Fail to Start
21/Apr/2003:17:30:38 - Error 10022 in function WSAASyncSelect
Invalid argument

}---------- from ftp.log -----------{

Therefore, to restart ftp server u must close webweaver (with http
server) and run it again.
