It's worse than that - it does the wrong thing with EOF, too. Try
setting your eofc to something other than ^D - you'll find that ^D is
EOF on the FTP command line and your eofc is ignored.
I submitted PR 3982 on the eofc subject. It was closed by perry:

Fixed in -current for weeks and.
Yet when I checked in -current a few weeks after that, I found it still
misbehaved as described in the PR. I've never tried to re-open or
re-submit it; if Perry thinks the current behavior isn't broken, it's
unlikely to be changed, regardless of how broken I think it is.
Incidentally, as I mentioned in 3982, gdb handles EOF right. I just
now checked, and it handles word-kill right too (though it has an
annoying tendency to beep when word-killing on an empty line).
