I just hit this, too.
The linux (hpa) version of tftpd has:
* Return a file size (c.f. RFC2349)
* For netascii mode, we don't know the size ahead of time;
* so reject the option.
So, for the archives (only two months later!), you can use 'mode octet'
(aka 'mode binary') to can work around this issue.
