It's a feature, not a bug. 8-)
Traditionally Unix shows you the absolute path when logged in as
non-anonymous user - after all why shouldn't they wander around on the
file system. I guess you can change this by setting all useres
(explicitly) as chroot or something - see /etc/ftpchroot.
Why this confuses your users is beyond me, though. :)
