I reproduced this problem with DeleGate/7.2.1 (the latest release)
on Windows95, accessing the server, processing a request generated
and sent by hand.
Thus the problem can be very generic one on Win32, with WU-FTP-2.6.1.

I think it is an appropriate solution since the DeleGate is waiting
a response from FTP-server with fgetsTIMEOUT() in ftpgw.c:

Another way I found during debugging is using MASTER-DeleGate as an
upstream DeleGate fo your FTP-DeleGate like:
  % delegated -P8000 RELIABLE=localhost
  % delegated -P2121 SERVER=ftp MASTER=localhost:8000 ...

 |Is there a configuration item I missed or is this a known compatibility issue with

Something very strange seems to occur in fclose() with Win32;
fclose() to a data-connection does not disconnect work the
data-connection to the Wu-ftp server (!?)
The enclosed patch, which will be applied to the next release
(DeleGate/7.2.2), can make DeleGate escape the problem.

Thank you for your informative notice.
