I believe Wout mentioned it earlier.  If there is a plus symbol in the file (ascii for EOF - end of file) then it cuts it off.  Having worked in dos since the '80s before windows existed I knew all too well the problem of files and posts.  If you concat (copy) A+b to C and A has a EOF char in it you could miss half the post.  One way is to strip email or ascii codes from the text or ensure all CR/LF (returns/line feeds) are in place to force the EOF to the bottom.
