'cd 4*' aborts with error when matching more than one directory
                instead of choosing the first match.  this is a real hassle,
                always forcing one to specify 'cd 4.7*' for example.  this
                functionality broke with the recent ftp.freebsd.org ftp server.
ftp ftp.freebsd.org:
                $ cd '4*' should be sufficient to enter 4.7-RELEASE/ ...
stop 'cd' from aborting in the ftp server,
                and give it the 1st match.
