Hello, I've encountered a rather strange thing with certain files/or
maybe just from ftp servers regarding MD 3.3.

The files doesn't end correctly, example:

I tried to download ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/tv+movies/imdb/diffs/diffs-
070511.tar.gz with MD 3.3, waited until it was finished, then opened
it with WinRar, tested it and it says 'corrupted archive'. 7-Zip says
the same.

However, I tried to download the same file with SmartFTP, and
directly inside Opera, with success, valid file.

I installed 3.2 Vista Compatible, and tried to download the same
file again. With success, valid file.

I sent this issue to the mailaddress you always refer to when
someone wants to send directly a week or so ago.
In that mail I attached a .zip file containing FC (the commandline command)
diffs between the correct file and the one produced by MD 3.3.

No response. That was the first time I've got no answer, not even a
autoreply.

Regards,
Jan M.

Thank you :)

3.3 seemed rather good, but this problem was a bit of a showstopper
for me. The 3.2 Vista Compatible worked/works perfectly on the mentioned file,
so I guess a change happened which led to this.

I'm not used to you having more than a day or two of delay, so that surprised me a
bit. :) No big deal now when I know you are working on it.

I hope you found the email I referred to as that contains a attached zip with the
FC diffs (binary mode) between the correct and the bad archive.

The email was named (almost) exactly the same as this topic.
