Subject.87 & ftp: corruption of gzipped files
Date

hi,

I just installed 1.3.87. when ftping to another machine (running 1.3.84),
the file cannot be unpacked anymore. tar -xzvf says something like
"gzip - file corrupted".

so I just ftp the file back to where I got it from, of course under a
different name. now "diff" tells me that the files differ.

Q: anyone else observed this behaviour ?

I've heard about problems in the ftp-masquerading code, and yes,
I have configured this option. however, it is not *enabled*, that
is, while doing ftp, no single masquerading rule was present.

is it possible that, if we assume that ftp-masquerading is corrupt,
packets are passed through this routines allthough they should not
because of absence of masquerading rules ?

here's my .config that contains "=y" (neither do I use kerneld nor any
other modules).

NB: I gonna recompile the kernel and disable the masquerading option.
let's see what's gonna happen.
