Hello,

I never post to groups because even though I have been making a living
programming for 20 years, I know nothing compared to everyone else.  At the
same time, I went through a similar nightmare for more than a year with
zero-byte uploads as you are describing.  One of the things we did to reduce
the zero bytes was to enable overwrite abilities at the FTP server.  What we
saw happening was our uploaded files were occasionally trying to re-upload
due to a timeout or something and when it did it was unsuccessful because
the shell of the file was already on the server and the permissions did not
allow for it to be overwritten.  This left a zero byte unclosed file.

Gambit - please do not follow up with a complete assault on my non Team-B
level observations.  I have already admitted I don't know what I'm taking
about.

Regards
Sam
