Sorry for the delay. These days I had no access to the Windows XP box
where I reproduce the problem.  (BTW, at home I was unable to
reproduce it using a Windows 7 client and  Ubuntu 10.10 ftp server).

Well, if I do what you said ((setq ange-ftp-binary-file-name-regexp
"")), then the problem seem to disappear in the quick test I've done.

So now I wonder two things:

1. In what cases do we want to have text-mode ftp transfers when
working with remote files? Because, IMO TRT would be to always use
binary mode, i.e., always work with the file in its actual EOL format.
I think that is what users expect, don't they?

2. This bug report has showed that the modeline flag corresponding to
the EOL format isn't always correct. So I think this should be fixed
if possible, and if not, this limitation should be documented at

Thanks for your time, Michael.
