Hi Tomek,
data gets mangled on Windows only and I don't know how many people
encountered this problem already and gave up because they assumed that
their input file is broken.

And most EPS files are pure ASCII, maybe in the Mac world binary files
are more common.

Thanks for the patch, could you send it to Gerben <Gerben dot Wierda
at rna.nl>?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
