Apache FTPClient doesn't handle common responses to PWD

      Description

      Common FTP servers (like vsftpd) responses' to PWD don't have a commentary as per RFC959.

      vsftpd, MockFtpServer and others respond thusly:

      > 257 "/"

      The current handling in FTPClient.__parsePathname simply returns everything after "257 ". This breaks other code that relies on Apache FTPClient, like the Camel FTP2 component.

      I suggest that, for increased resilience, this brief response be special-cased.

      vsftpd maintainer has been notified too, but it's just an email address.
