      Description

      I've an ftp server that at the pwd request responds with |257 root is current directory.| without any double quotes present and the lib gives up with this exception:

      java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
      at java.lang.String.substring(String.java:1949)
      at org.apache.commons.net.ftp.FTPClient.__parsePathname(FTPClient.java:469)
      at org.apache.commons.net.ftp.FTPClient.printWorkingDirectory(FTPClient.java:2374)

      Probably it's only needed a check in __parsePathname

      private String __parsePathname(String reply)
      {
      int begin, end;

      begin = reply.indexOf('"') + 1;
      end = reply.indexOf('"', begin);

      if (begin == -1 && end == -1)

      { return reply; }

      return reply.substring(begin, end);
      }
