file download never ends, dowloaded file grows and grows

Hello all,
I'm using Win 2003 Server fully patched, downloading from remote server which is running the same. I'm using the FileZilla client. (At the end of this email I have the info I got from the About screen.)
Problem: I was downloading a 38mb zip file, and the download never ended, the file grew and grew. Tried again after exiting and reloading FileZilla, same happened. The funny thing is this: in the 2nd download I waited after the file reached and passed the size it should've been, and I aborted the download. In both zip files the compressed file was fine. I guess some junk gets appended to the zip or some infinite loop kicks in after the file was done.

Good thing I still keep the old 3.x version which works super well.

Thank you for FileZilla. Best regards.

Here is the info on the client:

Your server is broken.

Microsoft servers actively claim to support resume, yet if you ask them to resume a transfer, they send the whole file instead, leading to the described symptoms.

You have to upgrade to a proper server.
