#30624 closed defect (bug) (maybelater)

Malformed comment in trips up FTP clients (solution included)

Component: External Libraries Keywords: has-patch

/wp-includes/ID3/ in line 1377 contains a comment ("mtda keys ...") with non-printable characters. I could imagine this resulted from copypasting parts of a formatted document into a text editor that does not show (or care about) special characters.

This is worth mentioning and correcting because, when uploading via FTP, this file trips up FTP clients that check a file's content whether it's binary and compare with the file extension. For example, the FTP client in Total Commander stops in its tracks to check back with the user, whether he's really sure he wants to upload a (detected) binary file in text mode (per file extension rules). A medium-sized inconvenience with an unattended upload.

The fix is obvious.
