I can't see any problem when trying this in my end. I tested the code below
and it works just fine. This ftp server has the good manner to accept any user
name and password so I can also verify that the one we set is actually sent
and used.

int main(int argc, char** argv)
   CURLcode code;
   CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();

   /* enable uploading */
   curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_UPLOAD, 1L);
   curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1L);

   curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "u15-aha:ahaaha");
   curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL,"");

   /* Now run off and do what you've been told! */
   code = curl_easy_perform(curl);
