Problem appears to be related to timeout.
The default is 90 seconds.
ftp_set_option($conn_id, FTP_TIMEOUT_SEC, $timeout)

Something confusing here - the message should indicate timeout occurred.
Also in the particular instance the resulting file is sometimes complete!

ftp_get() needs something more than just TRUE or FALSE result - or another function to check the result operation detail such as ftp_status().

FTP errors are reported via the usual PHP error reporting
mechanism, so the warnings are available via error_get_last().
However, in case of timeout, you always get the last message from
the FTP server, what is of course wrong.
