Has anyone else noticed that lately the ftp client defaults to user "root"
rather than the current user? I didn't pay attention to exactly when this
happened, but my machine running the 1.5 branch as of July 1 is doing it.
uid=123(laine) gid=20(staff) groups=20(staff),0(wheel),40(enable)
# ftp -d localhost
Connected to localhost.
220 localhost FTP server (NetBSD-ftpd 20000620) ready.
ftp_login: user `<null>' pass `<null>' host `localhost'
Do I have something out of sync on my machine, or is something wrong with ftp?
