WinSCP appends occasionally files when it should overwrite

Since version 4.1.9 I had sometimes the problem, that a changed file was not overwritten (as it should) but appended.

Problem occured on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
GUI-based version (Commander-style)
occured on versions 4.1.9 and 4.2.1beta
Protocol is FTP

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. 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.

This phenomena did not occur again yet, it seems to be very rare. But now, I have logging enabled. If it happens again, I will post the log here.
