I initially thought fixing known bug #44 would solve an issue i was having
with Tandem Nonstop FTP servers, but now it seems it doesn't. These
servers don't support LIST <path> with a path ending with a slash. Which
the path should do, by the way. So using CURLFTPMETHOD_NOCWD doesn't work.

I really need a way to prevent libcurl from CWDing into the entry path
upon a subsequent transfer (and connection re-use) as the user might be in
another Tandem API.

I'm attaching a patch which adds a new option to allow just that.

Tell me what you think.

It would save me from a lot of dull work in the future if this would get
