Topic "3.4.1 garbles transferred files"

Hi,

Let me be another to say how much I like WinSCP! It's great, easy to use and usually very reliable.

However, since 3.3.0, I haven't really had any luck with the new versions (not that I'm blaming you, I know you must work hard on the releases).

3.4 didn't transfer files smaller than 4K (which I see is fixed in 3.4.1) and now 3.4.1 garbles files.

I'm not sure if there is a difference based on file size, but I was transferring a theme.php file for phpNuke and it added a lot of @^ characters where there was only whitespace before.

Is that a tab character? I don't really remember.

If it helps, I'm using a Win98SE system, and transferring files to a Debian GNU/Linux system. I could list the SSH version #, but this problem seems to be directly related to 3.4.1.

3.3.0 works great for me, which is what I used to correctly upload the file.

Once again, thanks for GPL'ing such a great program for the community to use!

It is much appreciated.

Actually, I just transferred a 200K text file and it is replacing text as well as whitespace; it's not differentiating (prob spelled wrong) between the two.

Thanks for letting me know. Shame on me Sad Hopefuly, I'll release fix today or tomorrow morning, I'll try, what I can. Both this and the 3.4 bug was caused by the SFTP performace improvement, I've introduced in 3.4. It was rather complicated change.

I've forgot to add that the problem occurs only for text-mode transfers. So switch to binary and it should work fine. I hope that it also happens only for uploads. If you experience similar problem for downloads, please let me know ASAP. Thanks.

Yes, it seems that it only garbles on uploads (text mode, haven't tried binary), downloads seem fine (text mode).

I have released version 3.4.2, which should fix the bug.
