This was a good suggestion, as I've had other 
problems with ftp like this.  But turning PASV 
mode on or off seems to make no difference.  As 
per Victor's suggestion, I've eliminated 
temporarily the internet sharing part of the 
configuration and the problem persists, so it 
seems to be mpm and this particular Mac.  mpm 
works fine on two laptops that I have, one 
running 10.4 and the other 10.3
