I wonder if Bazaar is actually trying to use two connections,
simultaneously, or if there is miscounting at some level.

It may be something like this: Bazaar discarded an ftp connection
object and started using a new one, but the old one was not
sufficiently closed for the server to recognize it as such.  It might
be that we didn't send a QUIT message, or perhaps the socket was not
closed, or perhaps bzr in fact did do all of this and due to some
delay in the network the server had not actually seen it as closed

Tim, there is something you could do to help which would be to ask the
server administrator to send you the log lines corresponding to your
IP address, including the commands which were sent to the server.

Alternatively, and this may be slighly complicated, you can install
Wireshark on your machine and make a capture file of traffic to/from
that server.  (It may contain your password so don't just post it here
or in the bug without marking the bug private.)
