FTP Error: 'A Connection Is Already Open.'

Call me indecisive with the final-thought alterations; I see this error often.

(i) I'm uploading.
(ii) I cancel the upload.
(iii) I make changes.
(iv) I restart the upload.
(v) The error occurs.

I trust it's solely CityDesk, and not having FTP connections open from other Apps?  Could it be to do with uploading the same site to two locations?

I've had this happen.  I found the only way out is to close cd and restart.

Joel explained this in an article on his site.  There's some kind of bug in cancelling FTP so he has to give the appearance of disconnecting and wait for it to timeout in the background.  I find that if you wait, you can publish again.
