FTP strangeness



Heyas,
	A friend was transfering two files, one 250 megs, one 150 megs to
my openbsd box.  Running stock 2.7.  He is running windows 98 behind a
Linux Nat box.  The ftp prog was cuteftp.  I watched it during the
transfer, and both files were transfered in the entirety.  However, after
each file was finished, the filesize became:

-rw-r--r--  1 user  group  5525472 Oct 14 02:52 file1.ext
-rw-r--r--  1 user  group  5525472 Oct 14 05:05 file2.ext

	As you can see, neither of the files - after transfer - is 150 megs
or 250 megs.  Kinda sucks 8-( I had watched the second file transfer with
"ls -l" and it went up to 150,000,000+, but right after it was done, the
file size becomes what you see above.

	Any ideas anyone?  Thanx.

-Tai
