this is really strange. when i upload files via ftp (sftp doesn't seem to be affected), they get smaller on the server after upload. but this doesn't happen with all types and on all hosts. i've made a few tests:
- (no extension)
i couldn't find other file types which trigger this error. version 188.8.131.52. it fails on extra.hu, bplaced.net and godaddy free hosting but it doesn't on sf.net's ftp service.
i've tried to find out where the bug originates from.
3.0.1: fails with html and txt, doesn't with extensionless
3.0.2: fails with all 3
and since that version, the same result with the few releases i've tried.
i can give you an ftp account to one of the failing hosts in case you need it.
the really strange thing is that if i upload a txt, it displays as a smaller file than the one on my pc. if i then download it via http, or download via ftp with total commander, it really downloads a smaller and different file. BUT if i download the 'smaller' file via ftp using filezilla, it downloads the original bigger file (shasum matches).
if i upload files with total commander, the size is correct and it downloads the same file in all three ways (ftp@filezilla, ftp@totalcmd, http).
