You were right, we don't have to reconnect, we can re-use existing command
connection and establish a new data connection.
The actual problem was with interpreting response from "ABOR" command -
there we are unconditionally waiting for 2 responses. Typically we are
getting 226 (transfer completed) and after that 227 (abort succesfull). In
some circumstances, when you have fast connection to ftp, you data transfer
is already finished, so you will get only one 227 response. I've tried to
make it more intelligent now.
