There are two different problems with file transfer that I am aware of. Your 
problem may be worked around by specifying blocksize=512*1024 to the transfer 
step. I don't know what the proper fix is.

That will probably expose the second problem where files being transfered are 
opened in text rather than binary mode. I posted a patch for this to the list 
a couple of weeks or so ago.
