https://bbs.archlinux.org – I'm having an odd problem with a largish FTP download. Using wget, python ftplib and lftp, when I download this particular file (~241 MB of text/CSV information), the entire file will download but then it stops and has to be manually killed. This same file downloads perfectly from another Arch machine in a different location. I ran pdb on the python download and it hung here: (if that means anything to someone)ipdb> > /usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py(447)readline() 446 try: --> 447 data = self._sock.recv(self._rbufsize) 448 (HowTos)
