You're right of course! I was misled by the coincidental ratio of Windows text size to UNIX text size. The mystery is solved :idea:

Bug reports without an attached log file are usually useless.
So the problem does seem to lie in the remote panel: if WinSCP thinks that a remote file is ASCII text it displays its size in kilobytes, whereas if it thinks that a remote file is binary it displays its size in bytes. Perhaps you would consider displaying everything in bytes?
Now .tex files certainly are ASCII text, but I don't think WinSCP knows that---they don't appear in the "Transfer the following in text mode" mask.
*.*html; *.htm; *.txt; *.php*; *.cgi; *.c; *.cpp; *.h; *.pas; *.bas; *.tex; *.pl; .htaccess; *.xtml; *.css; *.cfg; *.ini; *.sh; *.xml
