I've tried it against a couple OS X machines, a linux VM and a linux
VPS so far. The only one that worked was the VPS but I'll have to
try again to make sure. What does seem to work fine is smaller files,
those transfer fine without hanging.

I'll do some more testing today on more systems and try a few
different sized files, but it's pretty much 100% failure with the 25M
file on almost every server.
