I noticed an odd behavior uploading a file using Cyberduck and wanted to report it.

Cyberduck went through the normal actions to do the upload and I got a Growl notification that the upload was successful, but the file didn't appear on the FTP server, nor within the CyberDuck window.

Researching this I later discovered the file was of zero byte size which might be key to this issue.

Granted there isn't a lot of point in uploading such a file, but on Unix systems you can "touch" files to create them (with zero size) and a programmer might just use a zero size file for file locking purposes or something otherwise to verify the file's existence.

Does your program allow for the creation of zero size files through FTP, or is this a limitation of FTP, or is this a limitation of my particular FTP server, or is this a bug in Cyberduck?

If possible, I think CyberDuck should create the file on the FTP server, but if not possible notify the user of the issue.

Note: Using Cyberduck version 2.8b1 (3178) on Mac OS X 10.4.10 on a PowerPC based Mac.
