Darn!  I was hoping someone figured out something for this.  As you may or
may not know, I distribute some FTP software.  The most common question I
get is "how can I specify an initial directory, not a library."  I thought
someone had figured out a way to force a command from an FTP exit program or
some other method which could be used to run a cd /dir in the background.

Oh well...
