Ah, that solves the problem. It definately needs to be documented in 
the mod_ftp docco/examples though, unless it's possible to make 
mod_ftp automagically set that config option on the listen-port it's 
bound to.

I'm eagerly awaiting fixes for the nullpointer-stuff, it's starting to 
feel like we're getting somewhere now :-)

On a side note, I browsed through the source and stumbled upon REST 
not being LFS capable. I have a patch that fixes that which should be 
correct but I want to test it before submitting it, just saying I'm on 
top of that one so others don't waste time on it :)
