ftp client's "ls" is "!ls"

I'm ftp'ing to a Dell/Quest K1000 System Management appliance, from a Debian 9.0 box, and when I execute the command "ls" or "del" or do a tab-completion, the commands act on the local directory instead of the remote, so that "ls" acts like "!ls".

I've tried different terminals, different shells, made sure there were no ls aliases getting in the way.

ftp from a Macintosh works fine.

How do I get my Debian's ftp ls to function properly?
