More Mantis problems

I have been fighting with PHP, Mantis and SOAP since my last post. Now I think I have discovered a bug when uploading via Mantis SOAP a binary file. It’s great being able to debug a PHP application. I hope what I discovered is useful for more people. But I’ve discovered something quite shocking:

I wasn’t able to find any good answers to something that must be frequent. I was uploading a binary file sending nulls: 00 00 00 or when base64-encoded: AAAA (in hex 41 41 41 41). And I was getting after downloading “\0” (slash-zero) values (5C 30)
