Subject Re: Failed to copy <file> due to null
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 21:11:11 GMT
I feel like keeping this a secret since only one person responded. 
Nevertheless, the message really means the contents of the file being 
filtered contain characters which cannot be translated into UTF-8, I 
believe.  It would have been more helpful to just issue a complete stack 
trace rather than this message.

I know other people have had this message before, so I hope it helps them.
