The PHPFTP-script running fine with PHP 4.2.3 won't work with PHP 4.3.0RC2 because ftp_get returns false in spite of doing its work correctly.

This simple script works fine, but displays "Failed!"
That's a hard "cosmetic" problem.

if (ftp_get($conn,"/tmp/ftptest","ftp.txt",FTP_BINARY))
echo "Success!";
echo "Failed!";
