When using "SFTP using SSH2" to transfer an ascii text
file to a Unix server the file ends up with M at the end of
every line. It does so even if I set the Transfer Type
to "ASCII" on either the Transfer menu or the default

Yes I can confirm this. Using 2.1.2 on Windows.

AFAIK SFTP can only transfer files in binary mode.
The problem is caused by the different line endings in
Windows and Unix:
Windows uses a CRLF pair, while Unix only uses LF.
Try using a text editor which can save files with Unix line
endings or use a converter.
