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.
Filing the same bug multiple times does not make it any more likely that it
will be looked at.
