:I noticed that fetch compiled with propolice and SOME ftp sites do not 
:play  well together. They ALWAYS play well when some proxy is involved - 
:even on same server! Basically fetch complains that file is corrupted 
:(size 0) despite transferring it in full. But this is nothing new - 
:was/is present on FreeBSD with propolice for some time.

    That isn't good... it means that there is likely a buffer overflow
    in fetch somewhere.  propolice reorders the way space is allocated
    on the stack for declarations.

    In this case, however, the bug is clearly in SACK.
