See my comments to the bugreport. Returning ERR_FILE_ALREADY_EXIST in the 
"put" io-slave before doing the first dataReq actually seems to solve the 
problem and in general seems to be the Right Thing To Do (tm).


PS: I do wonder what the behavior should be if there is both a partial file 
and the destination file, looking at the code it first seems to ask for 
resumption and then later asks whether to overwrite?? Isn't that a bit too
