Emacs failed in reading file from ftp

I got a (big) problem:

My emacs (GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars) of 2007-06-19 on ninsei, modified by Debian), running on debian etch has a problem while reading files from an ftp server (pureFTP). This is an error that occurs not everytime, but today I have a file of 7,5 MByte, but the emacs Editor reads only a "few" bytes, sometimes 128K sometime 260K without any schematic. This error occurs sometimes without warning: I read an php-file from the the server, store it, run it, and an error occurs: the file is broken, not all was loaded (a part of the end was missing), I haven't noticed it, change something, store and: I loose my file (but I can recovered from the incrementell backups).

The in the *Messages* buffer shows the error:
call-interactively: End of buffer [6 times]
Retrieving www-data...260k
Retrieving www-data...done
call-interactively: Quit [2 times]
exchange-point-and-mark: No mark set in this buffer [2 times]

Where www-data is the file of 7,5 MByte data.

The ftp-server shows following in the logs:
Jan 16 18:09:35 localhost pure-ftpd: (wwwtest@ [NOTICE] //home/wwwtest/public_html/class_readmail/www-data downloaded (7568015 bytes, 285175.62KB/sec) Jan 16 18:09:44 localhost pure-ftpd: (wwwtest@ [NOTICE] //home/wwwtest/public_html/class_readmail/www-data downloaded (7568015 bytes, 249759.01KB/sec)

and so on. More than 20 downloads, all occurs into the log with the same filesize and without any warning... So I think: It's emacs...

Sometime: I couldn't read any file from ftp-server. After 3-6 retries, it works...

Who knows this problem, what is the reason and where should I search?

Thanks in advance
Frank B.
