I certainly can. Here you go:

The zip contains 3 traces, one for each of v. 7.29, 7.30 and 7.32 done with
a local ftp server. I did each several times and the numbers were always the
same (or very close).

The 2 later versions take 1 sec. longer than 7.29 (which is very quick at
approx. 0.05 sec.). It seems that the delay is after the STOR and before the
data is transferred.
I tried to do a transfer in active mode, as you requested, with curl.exe by
adding --ftp-port 21 to the command line) but it "failed to resolve the
address provided to PORT: 21" even though it began with "Info: Connected to ( port 21 (#0)". I assume I am doing something
incorrectly but I don't know what it is. If you do, and can tell me, I'll
try it again.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks again for looking at this stuff.
