Is there a way to change this? I see what ya mean, just tested a box with
wuftpd and same thing. But why would it change the the name in the log
file and not change the actual file name also? That's like the log file
is telling a lie. Doesn't make any sense to me. Now I'm at a loss how to
handle this. It's difficult when an underscore could be ether of 2
characters. Arrrgghhh.
