I just ran into this myself. No time to write a patch (afraid my
git-repo is a bit of a mess), but the issue is on line 389:

    mode = ftp.lstat(remotepath).st_mode

This fails if the remotepath doesn't exist. It *will* work if you use
the new *great* feature of put: you can supply a directory as the
second argument instead (which as seen breaks the old functionality..

A *crude* fix would be:

        mode = ftp.lstat(remotepath).st_mode
        mode = None

While I'm at it, it seems the glob feature (line 393+) can't work
either. On line 391, remotepath is turned from a directory to a file
path by taking the basename of the localpath. Which thus cannot be a
glob pattern? ;)

(Anyway, it was very nice to see a new release with the new stuff in
place! Congrats.)

[Just saw Timothee found that using a directory works. So this is a
bugreport then.. ;)]

Best regards,
