Not sure if this is something that needs to be fixed in Storage API or core.
Maybe we can add some checking for this, checking every time or scheduly in cron, if the ftp server is not available, then we disable the possible actions.
The site crash is very annonying.
If still an issue please reopen this ticket and we will take a look at it!
