Note that on windows, you must open binary files using binary mode
when reading and writing them, like so:

    f = open('test', 'wb')
    f = open('test', 'rb')
                     ^^^^

If you don't do this binary data will be corrupted by the automatic
conversion of '\n' to '\r\n' by win32.  This is very likely what is
causing the above error.
