That was the problem!!! JESUSSSS!!! You can't imagine the time I've
spent trying to discover the reason why this happened!

I've set TERM do "linux" at a time when I was always having problems
when "sshelling" to my colege's Unix area. Since it didn't know
anything about "xterm" it always asked me to change the terminal
type on login. Changing TERM do linux solved the problem and didn't
give me any trouble then. But some time ago started giving me
problems... don't know why though.

I *AM* sorry... I normally check for file sizes, but forgot about
that this time! :/
That's a good tip for selecting file types, thanks. =)
