APPE corrupts my work

I want to use FileZilla to upload Files to a Server.
I want FileZilla to insert Files to the remote Filesystem
that does not exist on the Server so far.
FileZilla asks me how to handle Files on my sytem that
are older on the server.
What FileZilla does not ask me - and does wrong - is
handling files with an identical timestamp on my PC and
I transfer ASCII-Files. On my system a linebreak is
stored with 2 bytes. The remote system stores one byte
per linebreak. It strips off the extra byte automatically,
thus making the file shorter.
FileZilla on an update of the whole directory structure
recognizes the identical FileDate and the different
(smaller) filesize and thus thinks it has to APPEnd extra
bytes to the file on the server.
That's why I'd call "motherfucking bullshit" ;-)
It does not malke sense at all.
My ASCII-files are PHP scripts that now become
unparsable by PHP and screw up my whole system.
It took me 3 houres yesterday (Sunday evening) to
figure this error out, finally delete all files on the server
and upload them wholly.
So please change FileZilla that it works in a way it does
not automatically corrupt my scripts.
