Hmm, my script gets the size with the ftp SIZE command. For example, on 

Net::FTP=GLOB(0x8327c38)>>> SIZE debian-30r0-i386-binary-1.iso
Net::FTP=GLOB(0x8327c38)<<< 213 614780752

It too shows up as 612171776 in the ls command, so I am not sure what is
going on there.

I only find one or two with the images directory. IMHO it should be
removed for consistency. My script shall not default to looking for it.
