Hi Doug, Nick,
I just ran a test here with the plugin that opens as 'r', and can't
reproduce the error either.
Please test this for me. As I said,
I don't get an error now, but I didn't before either.
So, does this mean that I was wrong about the 'r'? Is it my reflex
from Windows times, where 'r' and 'rb' yield different results when
reading text files? Is it that 'r' works fine on my test files, but
one of Doug's files has a byte string that somehow triggers reading
as UTF-8? Or could it be related to Doug not having GExiv2?
I suspect that opening as 'rb' won't hurt, but I do like to
understand what's going on.
