I've used Zend Studio IDE for a long time now and I can firmly recommend it. Although I haven't used it on Linux, it's built on Java so the looks and functionality would be exactly the same on Linux as my Windows version. The only minor downide (on Windows at least) is that it can be quite slow to load at times due to running on Java.
They have also recently released a new version called Zend Studio for Eclipse (I believe Eclipse runs on Linux - don't quote me on that though :D) which goes a long way to solve the speed issues but unfortunately introduces issues of its own.
As for the features you where after, it covers most of them:
2) Database manager - the latest version of Zend Studio comes with a handy database manager which while isn't up to the standard of the MySQL Windows tools, does a fair job of looking after your databases
3) Save to FTP - Yep, comes with this and works well. Use this feature myself a lot.
So, to summarize - bit pricey and occasionally slow, but highly recommended :)
