      I have a ftp server (pure-ftpd) on the machine without speed limit, and the machine is in a 100M LAN. When file transfering, randomly, console reported that the netcard drop the packet for unexpect packet size.
      Randomly. Sometime, even if a lot of file transfer, there is nothing happened. While sometime, when I check the log, a lot of error in it. And in daily mail, before the ftp was used heavily, there were tens of IErrs, while after, there are thousands of.
      I use current on another machine which has the same problem when use 5.2.1, and ... I think, the problem does not occur till now.
