     This is a very low-level problem that as of yet has not been solved.
The problem exists for network connections that have long delay times (for
instance, US to Europe).  If dir doesn't work, there is a file called ls-lR
in /grass that contains a constantly-updated directory of all the GRASS
archives.  If you "cd /grass" and "get ls-lR" you'll have a file that will
help you navigate through the ftp site without the need of the ls command.
     Hope this helps!
