What do you mean by 'updates the "Directory of" HREF accordingly'?
Are you trying to say mod_proxy_ftp requests a *different* URL from
the origin server?  If so, it sounds like a bug.

That's entirely right if the server didn't issue a redirect.

That correction, in either http or ftp, is the business of the origin server,
not the proxy.  For a proxy to issue it would be deeply broken.
