In this case, the Chilkat customer was kind enough to share the cause of the problem (and the solution)

"we ended up finding the problem. It was on the FTP server’s end and (according to their IT person) had to do with their load balancer not using sticky sessions. I’m not a low-level network guy so I don’t know if that makes sense/sounds plausible to you, but the short of it is that it works now."
