The only way Select() can keep returning False is if no connection is ever
being established.  That suggests that one of the connections is likely
being blocked, such as by a firewall or router.

current snapshot.  An ATimeout parameter has already been added to Listen(),
and a new ListenTimeout property has been added to TIdFTP as well.

Upgrade to a newer snapshot.
