Description of problem:
The listing of the downloaded directory in the .listing file which is created by wget when visting ftp sites and which remains if the --no-remove-listing or --miror option is used grows after each download. Wget is appending to the .listing file and not re-creating it as it did in previous versions. Version is wget-1.10.2-0.fc4.i386.rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run wget with the --no-remove-listing or --mirror option on the same url twice and the .listing file will contain duplicate entries of the name(s) of the file(s) downloaded.
Actual Results: On the second visting the directory listing was appended to the previous .listing file.
Expected Results: The .listing file should be a single listing of the files in the directory of the url visited.
