Damn, here we were trying to fan the flames on a smoldering banana
peel while this guy is over here with a blowtorch and a can of
gasoline (petrol). 


are there any logs pertinent to the ftp server? if not, you might want
to turn them on. turn up the logging/verbosity on your ftp
client. plus review EVERYTHING you did to your sytem in the last few
days. And don't give us a bunch of crap about how windows is a better
ftp server. go out and see how many public ftp sites are run on *nix
varieties with no trouble for years on end.
