I don't think it really hangs, it just takes a long time to complete.

No, we clearly want to run the test against a real ftp server. Running
it against different types of servers would be even better. What we
should probably do is try to connect to a server on localhost first,
this way people can install the server of their choice to provide more
test coverage.
