When I read data from stream returned byGetDownloadStream method, Stream.Read returns invalid value.

See an example:
void Main(string[] args)


       Sftp client = new Sftp();

       client.Connect("localhost", 22);

       client.Authenticate("TestUser", "Masterkey");

       var inStream = client.GetDownloadStream("/TestFolder/TestFile.txt");


       var buffer = new byte[4096];

       while (true)


              int readed = inStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);


              //Real file size is 388 bytes, buffer contains correct data, but reade = 163840(dec).

              if (readed <= 0)





              var str = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(buffer);




Why "readed" variable contains 163840 instead of 388?
