Fix FTP support
In Tails 0.12.1, I manage to connect to a FTP server on the Internet (such as
ftp.de.debian.org) neither with iceweasel nor with GNOME "Connect to server" feature.
At least the latter works properly to connect to a FTP server on the LAN by IP.

The 1259 Tor ticket has a workaround, with poor usability. 3290 should not have been closed IMO. Commented there. In any case, the problem remains.

See the linked upstream tickets: that’s a fundamental design issue with FTP vs. Tor, and the expected user-visible outcome is that it sometimes works… and sometimes doesn’t.
