Unfortunately there is a good chance this is going to
happen for every FTP server until we have a huge
string of special conditions.  Eventually, we might
even run into one that returns something meaningful
with the same codes we're ignoring!

I like Peter's suggestion best.  When an error code is
returned for MKDIR, just log it and proceed as if no
error occurred.  If it's truly an error, you're likely
to get another, this time fatal, error on a CD or a
PUT.  Logging the MKDIR error will allow the user to
track down the real problem.
