I first tough It could be him simply downloading this package from an autralian http mirror. I found out to effectively be the IP for ftp.wa.au.debian.org, but I received your email only when I was about to answer.

  How to reproduce It?  apt-get -Vu remove --purge ftpd

Then your next installation will again download ftpd from this mirror. Unless me missed something, problem solved.
