IPv6 FTP support in gnome-vfs

biot.com has an AAAA record, and while gnome-vfs tries to use that, it doesn't
know to use EPSV instead of PASV.
Basically, RFC 2428 support needs to be implemented.
A quick workaround might be to not attempt to connect to IPv6 addresses for FTP;
this will at least make things work.
The problem still exists in gnome 2.14
Still happends in gnome 2.16
This bug is quite old and nobody seems to be intrested...

qiuck and dirty patch
Add a gconf key to enable old behavior (aka PASV command).
Still problems with kerberos and ipv6

A better patch
Still present in 18.104.22.168
Still not fixed in 2.19.3
gnome-vfs has been deprecated and superseded by gio/gvfs since GNOME 2.22, hence mass-closing many of the gnome-vfs requests/bug reports. This means that gnome-vfs is NOT actively maintained anymore, however patches are still welcome.
If your reported issue is still valid for gio/gvfs, please feel free to file a bug report against glib/gio or gvfs.
@Bugzilla mail recipients: query for gnome-vfs-mass-close to get rid of these notification emails all together.
