79 parts of 650KB making a rar of 625KB ???
« on: September 16, 2011, 06:05:40 PM »

Hi, this is the 1st time i got this bug.
To reproduce, search for t-duse in nzb.cc, grab it. Files should be 50MB, i got 625KB files, don't know why.
Maybe it is my ISP?
Tried with web version of binsearch... same.

Same here, it's not your ISP.
I'll take a look.

Again, example of badly written posting tool. Tool in question is: yEncUp v1.0.4 by Wantos

Mr. Wantos has a problem understanding yenc specifications described here: http://www.yenc.org/yenc-draft.1.3.txt
It clearly states that in multipart posts value of size in ybegin header line is the size of the whole file and not the part.

Quote
=ybegin part=70 line=128 size=640000 name=t-duse.rar
=ypart begin=44160001 end=44800000
It should be size=50000000

However, I've implemented workaround for this case (side effect is that endfile is fragmented)
