I can confirm the endless windows bit. It seems that it will just try to open in your default browser, which 
gets interesting if Arora is your default browser.

Just to clarify for historical sake Arora simply asks the system to open a url, the system is determining that ftp 
should be handled by the default browser and not a ftp application.

We should add a check to prevent these loops until ftp directory listing can be added.
