I hopefully won’t be able to reproduce this, so I’m just mentioning it in case anyone else had seen the same thing.

Was working on something for  awhile today, that amongst other things saves a web based image to a local file. On these lines:
put url "https://livecode.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/lclogo1.png" into url("binfile:test.png")

Everything was going fine, but then I started to get zero byte sized files. At first I thought my scripts had gone wrong, but eventually I just tried things in the message box, and they failed there too.

Restarting LiveCode 8.0 dp14 fixed the issue.
