It seems to corrupt the files around 3 of 10 times. It's not always at
the same place, and also not identical. So to sum up, everything is
pretty much random.

Now, i've set tramp-chunksize to 500 and 1024, and i can't seem to get
the corruption anymore :-S I'm now gradually trying higher values
(2048 atm). But i'm just trying this for about an hour, so don't
consider it a conclusion.

The place of corruption in the file, and the 'characters'/binary data
it inserts.

So, the things i suspect might have something to do with it:
 - chunksize (what does the default do in comparison with values like
   500/1024/2048)? I read the documentation, but it doesn't mention
   what tramp does if it's set to nil.
 - traffic goes through an OpenBSD 3.6 firewall with scrubbing
   (traffic normalization) on

BTW, the remote/target host is running FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE
