Sorry for confusion, i'm reproducing it with AOL's AIM6 (non-Express) client. 
I'm not sure AIM Express supports file tranfers at all. It's true for Windows 
and MacOSX servion of AIM6, and MacOSX version says that the file uploaded 
has "failed the verification process".
Trillian client behaves the same way. Elder AIM5 seems not to complain about 
failed transfers. Later i'll have some information about Mac's iChat.

I've filed a bug (http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/2489), in short from the 
MacOSX  AOL client message and what I see in Miranda IM code I guess file 
checksumming is needed after the transfer is completed, [guess] the same way 
it's done in libpurple for file transfer resuming.
