[Buildbot-devel] DirectoryUpload doesn't upload file completely, still thinks it succeeded

Hello there,

I've just set up a new buildbot after not looking at it for a while and noticed
the new DirectoryUpload functionality. That's great, and exactly what I needed,
except I'm having a small issue with it.

In this specific case, the slave is Windows, and the master is Linux (and I
believe that might matter). 

When the DirectoryUpload does it's thing, the uploaded files are just a couple K
large, though the original files were several megabytes. It *smells* to me like
the source file is being opened with 'r' instead of 'rb', which is a pretty
common mistake that happens when people are too used to Linux *wink*.

So my question: has anyone experienced a similar issue? Does the description
ring a bell to anyone?

For reference, the master is running at:


and the uploaded files should have ended up at:
