Maybe, but you should check your LOGFILE (if you are not suppressing
it) whether of not there are lines recording something unusual around
the transfer.  If you can't interpret it, someone including me could
do it by proxy, if the log is given :p

"W" means other than L, H and N.  The source file tansferred is
not { Local to the DeleGate host, Hit in the DeleGate cache,
Non-cached hit }.  If you are using DeleGate as a proxy server and
not configured it to use cache (by CACHE=do), this field is "W".
And because uploading a file is not classified to any of these case,
the status of uploading (by STOR typically) is aloways "W".
