Description of problem:
calling ncftpget -DD fails to delete the remote file. according to the man page,
-DD should cause the remote file to get deleted after transfer; this does not
happen. tried this with several different remote sites running different ftpd
implementations; access rights to the file are OK.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ ncftpget -DD -d -u <user> -p <pass> <site> . test.txt

Actual Results:  file was retrieved from remote site. file is still at remote
site, didn't get removed

Expected Results:  file shows up locally, is removed at remote site

Additional info:

can reproduce on RH 7.1, too (ncftp 3.0.2)

works for me with the current version. Are you sure the permissions
were right ?  Connect with a regular ftp client and try to delete
these files.
Does that work ?
