When copying files, digest comparison uses ctime when types are different.
When copying a file onto a directory:
verbose: Checksum comparison replaced by ctime: files not regular

This issue may happen with:
file_copy_from_*methods in the technique editor
- Download files from the shared folder technique with the "digest" comparison method (which is the default)
It occurs when copying source to destination, if destination already exists and has different type (dire, file, symlink, etc.) than source. In this case, the comparison is based on creation time.
It means that if destination was created after source, source will never be copied to destination and a success report will be made.
