BUG #: 351406 (SHILOH_BUGS)
If the FTP task step of a Data Transformation Services (DTS) package is disturbed by a network error, the process may discard the partially downloaded file, continue execution to completion, and report that it "successfully completed execution of package". Because no error is logged in the package error log, the operator may be unaware that files are missing.
DTS responds inappropriately to the operating system's status callback.

Package failed because step % failed".
