#10633: duck cli - synchronize-download and download-compare don't seem to work

 i'm attempting to get just changed/updated files from my ftp site to my
 machine and can't seem to get it to work, i'm not sure if it's something
 i'm doing wrong or if these commands don't work (or don't work as i

 when initially downloading i'm using:
      --preserve --existing compare --download
           * (as well as all the other bits like where to get stuff and
 where to put it)

 if i run the command again duck seems to just re-download everything, no
 comparing happening (the files on the server aren't changing)

 if i attempt to use synchronize with:
 --preserve --existing download --synchronize
  duck seems to look at the files (based on the verbose output) but then
 returns with
       Transfer incomplete…
       > QUIT
       < 221-Goodbye. You uploaded 0 and downloaded 0 kbytes.

 this is even when files *have* changed on the server and should thus be
 new and pulled down (or so i expect)

 Can you let me know if i'm missing something in the commands i'm running
 or in how i'm expecting this to work?

 In case it affects things, the ftp path i'm pulling from has quite a few
 subfolders and files, not just a flat structure.
