Unicode uploads get scrambled

Description

Hi,

We've been having issues with FileZilla screwing up
Unicode files on upload. The content seems to stay
broadly the same, but it corrupts them somehow and
adds a load of extra characters to the top of the
uploaded file.

Thanks,

G

Please try to upload the file in binary mode, Ascii mode may
damage file contents as ascii files are handled bytewise. In
binary mode, the file contents do not get modified.

Also, some Windows programs (Notepad for example) do add
some hidden bytes to the beginning of the file the program
itself does not display, but other programs might display
them as junk characters.
