A potential long runner like Wget should never call abort().

In src/ftp.c are some switch() with incomplete testing and defaulting to call abort(). This may stop Wget randomly.

Example:
ftp.c, L585+:
err = ftp_syst ...
switch (err)...

'err' may become WRITEFAILED on write errors. This is not cased by the switch and would got into the default case that calls abort().

Solution:
Never call abort(). Instead print a precise error message and return the error to the calling function.
