False size calculation for ASCII transfers

Reported by: andrewdavidson3 Owned by: dkocher
Priority: high Milestone: 3.0
Component: ftp Version: 2.7.2
Severity: normal Keywords: disconnected, upload, file size,
Cc: Architecture:


When uploading files to FTP servers, including my personal ftp server that I need to use daily, I get the message "Disconnected" in the Transfers window after the upload has completed. The files do appear to get there, but the file size reported is generally .1 - .2 kB larger than the "total" file size.

A screenshot of the issue can be seen at

This happens to me very consistently on several FTP sites so its not just a fluke thing for me at least, and it happens on both my MacBook and Intel Mini.

Using ASCII or 'Auto' FTP transfer mode?

Using 'Auto' transfer mode, although 'ascii' exhibits the same error.

Binary seems to work better in a couple of quick tests, but I was hoping to use "auto" to get the best transfer speeds for my uploads. My upload connection is only 384kbps and it's nice to get the best uploads speed possible with that.

Is this a 'known issue'?
