Yes, but then you don't re-use your existing connection.

This is an error in the library all right. As can be seen above, when you try
to do the second request, you first get the reply back from the previous
request ("226 Transfer complete") instead of the reply for the "CWD" command
as it was expecting.

This needs to be fixed in the library. I'll have a look at it tonight or
