I'm experiencing a weird bug. When I upload single files all content inside those files get duplicated.
E.g. I'm uploading a file with 250 lines, the remote file gets 500 lines. If I try to edit the remote file while inside WinSCP it gets 1000 lines etc..

The WinSCP version I'm using is 5.5.3 build 4214.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem while uploading (using the latest version of WinSCP).

Does this happen always or only when remote file already exists? Does it actually duplicate the contents or append new contents at the end of existing file?

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
