latest cygwin does not track pwd?

I found the latest inetutils-1.3.2-7 has the same behaviour.
$ ftp localhost
550 Invalid argument.
inetutils-1.3.2/ftpd/ftpd.c also relys on this bug.
$ grep getpwd ftpd.c
path = getcwd (0, 0);
char *cwd = getcwd (0, 0);
char *path = getcwd (0, 0);
The ftpd should be fixed, I think.
