FTP, won't pass through non-readable directories when they
are part of the path to the file specified on the command

Given an ftp site with directory structure:

	private         +x-rw
	  foo           +xr
	    blah.tgz    +r

The command:

$ ftp ftp://ftp/private/foo/blah.tgz

doesn't work yet

$ ftp ftp
ftp> cd private/foo
ftp> get blah.tgz
