Lightroom 2-5: using FTP plugins makes Lr unstable - prone to crashing.

I've been trying to make FTP (in Lr) reliable for years, but so far - no go.

Recently, I decided just to use the canned Lr FTP Upload plugin (in SDK) to see if repeated use also makes Lr unstable - it does.

To be clear, Lr may not crash whilst FTP-ing, but may crash afterward.

I dunno if same problem on Mac, but problem has been since Lr2 (probably Lr1) on Windows XP (32-bit), Vista (64), and 7/64. Multiple motherboards and other hardware, fresh OS installs, different graphics adapters, etc..

It may work fine 2 or 3 times in a row, or more, but the trend is clear: the more times it is exercised, the more likely Lr will crash - either during or afterward.
