ncftpget recursive -R not working

I want to download ftp folder recursively with ncftpget. I am using the -R
option but it does not work.

Doing following does not download anything:
ncftpget -T -R -v -u user -p pwd /home/tmp /www

Appending an asterix does download something but not recursively (only files
from /www/ are downloaded no directories).
ncftpget -T -R -v -u user -p pwd /home/tmp /www/*

what is wrong here?
