We've seen this before. I don't know what it is.

Please try again, and use efs-report-bug to send a bug to the EFS
Background: EFS starts up an external FTP process, and starts talking
to it. If the answers it gets are not what it expects, it breaks.
It's unlikely that we can come up with a sensible error message there,
except to add "internal error, please report to EFS and XEmacs
maintainers". Because if we knew what the problem was, we'd fix it.
