Not following the detailed arghuments here, but I have tried the various  
URIs on Opera 7.54:

ftp://stamber:*****@publish.reutershealth.com/ftptest.txt
your client DOES conform to RFC 1738.  Congratulations!

> ftp://stamber:stamber@publish.reutershealth.com/%2e/ftptest.txt
your client DOES conform to RFC 1738.  Congratulations!
(but it appears to have "optimized away" the "%2e/" and just looked up  
ftp://stamber:*****@publish.reutershealth.com/ftptest.txt)

> ftp://stamber:stamber@publish.reutershealth.com/%2f/ftptest.txt
your client DOES NOT conform to RFC 1738.  Oh, well!

> ftp://stamber:stamber@publish.reutershealth.com/./ftptest.txt
your client DOES conform to RFC 1738.  Congratulations!
(but same "optimization" as above)

> ftp://stamber:stamber@publish.reutershealth.com//ftptest.txt

HTH

It seems that Opera is conforming.
