Glitches -- PassiveFTP and Janus/.Net

With Passive FTP 1.4 I've encountered a number of occasions in live use — but not, alas when running in set-up tests, where it seems that operations on a large server-side directory and shuffling that around by adding or deleting files can cause some sort of fault in the icon rendering.

In Janus.Net 1.1, I have observed that null credentials (empty username and password) will suffice to perform NTLM authentication. A little digging suggests that this is a "feature" of the protocol. Note that IE prevents you giving an empty username+password in the login dialog box by keeping the OK button disabled under those circumstances.
