Interesting!  I just connected From my Tiger-PowerMac to my 
Panther-PowerBook over my network and created a zip archive using the 
OS X built-in facility, then dragged it to a folder on my 
Tiger-PowerMac, unzipped it and it worked!

Is this a Mac OS X thing or a Rev thing?  I haven't seen this 
behaviour with other software I move by dragging across a network 

When both the PowerMac and PowerBook were Panther, I don't think I 
saw this problem with Rev either??
