#3252: Overwrite action creates 0KB file in Finder

     Type:  defect                  |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  high                    |   Milestone:           
Component:  ftp                     |     Version:  3.2      
 Severity:  critical                |    Keywords:  Overwrite
 OS: 10.5.6 and 10.5.7
 Cyberduck: 3.2 (also duplicated with versions going back to 3.0.3; 3.0.3
 works correctly)

 Problem: When downloading file from FTP share to Desktop, overwriting a
 file of the same name and type, the overwrite action will fail resulting
 in a blank, 0K sized file. Can immediately perform the same action again
 and have a positive result.

 Steps to duplicate:
 1. Create a plain text file in text editor. Save file to Desktop with name
 1. Connect to FTP share.
 3. Copy test.txt file to FTP share.
 4. Now reverse the previous action. Attempt to copy text.txt from FTP
 share to Desktop. When prompted, choose to Overwrite file.

 At this point the file on the Desktop will be overwritten, but the
 resulting file will be blank and 0K.

 5. Repeat step 4. The file will now be correctly written to the Desktop,
 but you will not receive an overwrite prompt again.

 Have duplicated with three different machines and two different FTP

 See attached file for log data.
