The file size is reported correctly by FileZilla. Starting the transfer by dragging the file to the client window correctly starts the transfer. The time of transfer seems to be correctly reported using the file size and the transfer speeed (as displayed). When the progress window reaches the original file size, it reports zero time left. However, the transfter continues and in the case creates a much bigger file.
To me this seems like some kind of bug.
