Okay, on small files it shows

"-31: Failed opening remote file"

and then just works, and the progress indicator is correct.

On large files i.e. texlive2014-20140525.iso it shows that the size is
16384P (yeah, petabytes) and doesn't even start copying.

I guess before we do further tests I should upgrade libssh2, but in any
case, I have a feeling that it doesn't have to do with symlinks, but
rather with large files.

Sincerely yours,
