Does anyone have any problems with mirror redownloading files
under a different name?

For example, on my GNU mirror, it will have a file named


Mirror will download the file.

The next night, when the cron job starts up the mirror master,
it will download


But, mirror claims that it's downloading the file called


And it will continue adding on more and more extensions until
I blow away all the bogus files, and then it starts over.

In terms of directories, if you have a directory called foo,
and it gets the whole directory one night, thte next night it
will get foo: and then it will get foo::, etc, etc.

Any ideas?
