#10861: Files with same name are concatenated, not over-written

 On MacOS 10.13.6, using Cyberduck Version 6.7.0 (28613), when I upload a
 file with the same name via SFTP to our SFTP server, the uploaded file is
 concatenated onto the existing file, it does not overwrite it.

 The 'Existing Files' setting on the 'General' tab of the 'Transfers'
 preferences page is set to 'Overwrite'.

 For some files types of course, this breaks the file. I have tested this
 with Excel (files get corrupted), txt (files are concatenated and legible
 with the content of the existing and new file both visible), gzip archives
 (the archive is concatenated and this *survives* gzip decompression so
 that the resulting decompressed file is also concatenated - pretty

 Attached video shows this - you can see that each time I drag and drop a
 file into the Cyberduck browser window, the size of the remote file
 increases by the size of the uploaded file.
