ftp seems to get a delayed reaction.

I have managed to prune the script, so I can post it here:

==========================================================

from ftplib import FTP

bckrt = "/tmpstor/rcpc42"

def process():
  print "making directory"
  try:
    ftp.mkd('ftp-tst')
    print "mkdir succeeded"
  except Exception, ErrMsg:
    print "mkdir failed: %s" % ErrMsg
  fl = open("tstfile")
  print "storing file"
  ftp.storbinary("STOR ftp-tst/ftp-file\n",  fl)
  fl.close()

ftp = FTP('ftphost', 'user', 'passwd')
ftp.set_pasv(False)
ftp.cwd(bckrt)

print "Doing once"
process()
print "Doing twice"
process()

----------------------------------------------------------
And this is the output:
==========================================================
Doing once
making directory
mkdir succeeded
storing file
Doing twice
making directory
mkdir failed: 500 '': command not understood.
storing file
Traceback (most recent call last):
