Here is a simple description how to reproduce the bug:
Create a text file on an FTP server (Shift+F4 in remote folder), type "abc" into it and save it. It uploads. Then change its contents to "12345" and save it. Open it once again and chances are you are going to find: "abc45" (instead of "12345").

It's the same while updating files during synchronization (in both directions). File update works well if the new file is of the same size or smaller than the old one but not when it is larger. I tried to find a workaround but found none.

WinSCP version: 4.0.0 (Build 342)
Remote server: UNIX Type: L8

Regards, Ydriuf

Can confirm that, 4.0b, Win2k

I have the same problem: every file saved using the internal editor in FTP sites store garbage from the clipboard at the end of the file.

I'm using WinSCP 4.0.0 build (342) on Windows XP connecting to Unix Solaris 8/9, Linux Fedora and Windows 2k servers.
