Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-08-01 22:10:33 UTC
I needed to download some updated from ftp://people.redhat.com/jbj and came
across this undesirable feature:

I was told that the files would there in about 20 minutes and about 20 minutes
later I brought up gftp on the system I needed to download to.  I manually
entered people.redhat.com, 21, anonymous, etc. and connected.  Nope files not
there yet.  I kept trying every so often but still no show. Between each attempt
I disconnected but did not close gftp

Later, on a different system I invoked gftp and looked again -- files present.

I went back to the download system, connected, and looked again -- nothing!

Closed gftp and then restarted.  Manually connected and the files were there.

It appears that gftp is using its cache files incorrectly.

Bug confirmed in gftp-2.0.13-5.  You have to select "Refresh" in order for
changes to show up, but that's not the right thing for the user to do right
after they've connected to the server.

Changing product component to 8.0 and making bug public.
