Possibly; as Joshua mentioned, FTP clients may try to translate line
feeds to CRLF if they think it's a text file.

However, more likely IME is that Windows is just calculating the number
slightly differently.  265 * 1024 = 271360, which might be called 271 by
a program using even thousands instead of 1024.
