;; On Windows, the standard ftp client behaves a little oddly,
;; initially buffering its output (because stdin/out are pipe
;; handles). As a result, the startup message doesn't appear
;; until enough output is generated to flush stdout, so a plain
;; accept-process-output call at this point would hang
;; indefinitely. So if nothing appears within 2 seconds, we try
;; sending an innocuous command ("help foo") that forces some
;; output. Curiously, once we start sending normal commands, the
;; output no longer appears to be buffered, and everything works
;; correctly (or at least appears to!).
