Have you tried fixing the code itself as I suggested earlier (e.g., to
actually close the FTP connection cleanly)?  If it is preventing the
final chunk of data from being transmitted across the socket, that
could easily show up as a corruption of the file from Foxpro's

While it might not change anything, it's certainly an easier option to
try compared to some of the other items being discussed in this
thread, not to mention it's probably a bug in the code in any event.
