Right, empties all.
Also interesting, I could only getResources from the files I created with Rev. 

I was pretty sure I had seen all those working in someone else's stack.
I thought maybe "open for binary read" might work, but no.

Could this be something that was once working and is now broken in 4.5-dp2?
