When downloading a file via ftp login with an unknown extension (i.e. .jjj or
.xvi file) on the Mac build, an Unknown Error appears and no file is downloaded.
 This only happens when ftp downloading files with a login, and not via
anonymous ftp.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Note: this is a Netscape Internal Testcase
1. Start
Netscape 6 Mac client (build tested 20001108)
2. ftp login to my linux box elektra
ftp://you_user_id@elektra.mcom.com/tmp/ftp-test/
Download the two files
file1.xvi
file2.jjj
3. Unknown error dialog box appears, file isn't downloaded

*File is downloaded on Windows and Linux


Actual Results:  Doesn't download unknown file type, it gives an Unknown Error message	

Expected Results:  It should download unknown file type to specified directory.

I have the same two files available via anonymous ftp at
ftp://elektra/pub, Mac N6 downloads the files correctly

This is fixed on the current trunk builds (May 10 Mozilla build was tested). 
Handling of downloading unknown file types has changed on current builds.  I was
able to download he files with no problems using that build.  Option to Save to
disk was available, files saved with no error. resolving bug as worksforme
