On reason that you might have had trouble base64encoding is that it  
inserts a newline every 80th (I think) byte, so you only need that to  
happen once to mess up a scheme that relies on line delimiters. In  
fact, you can remove the newlines that it inserts, and it doesn't  
seem to cause problems with base64decode...
