If you apply a text filter to a binary file, the file will be corrupted. This
is documented.

This has 2 reasons
1) As the file is treated as text line endings will be converted.
2) The token may occur and be replaced

>From the manual:
Note: When a filterset is used in an operation, the files are processed in text
mode and the filters applied line by line. This means that the copy operations
will typically corrupt binary files. When applying filters you should ensure
that the set of files being filtered are all text files.
