There are FTP problems for recursive ftp (mirroring) due to
paired symbolic links that cause your FTP server to infinite loop
on a LIST -R command (recursive list). 

 CURATED -> ../../../../genomes/Bacteria/Archaeoglobus_fulgidus
 GENBANK_ORIGINAL -> ../../../genbank/genomes/Bacteria/Archaeoglobus_fulgidus
(there may be others; this is the first)

The above problem affects most FTP clients that use 'ls -R' for mirroring all
files.  For anyone using the old standard Perl 'mirror' package, you can avoid
the above problem using this package option 'recurse_hard=true' along with

Also, the Bio-mirror.net site has this current GenBank Release 158.0 at
See http://bio-mirror.net/ for other countries' mirror sites.
