Description of problem:
gftp crashed when try downloading file from ftp server with IPv6 address. It
outputed Segmentation fault in terminal. I couldn't get more traceback because
it's not a c application which could not be debugged by gdb. bug-buddy and
debuginfo pkg also did not get any output. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5.2 Server GA

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gftp by clicking Applications->Internet->gFTP or typing `gftp` in
2. Configuration pls refer to the attachment.
3. Select the file you want to download and click left arrow button.
Actual results:
It crashed immediately.

Expected results:
The remote file is expected to be downloaded successfully.

Additional info:
Using firefox to download the same file on the same ftp server with IPv6 address
works fine.
