phpBB to xenForo attachments broke after import

I believe I figured the problem out (hopefully) though it will require me to do another import. I don't believe the phpBB attachments in /files/ were uploaded in binary format, which screwed up the import of attachments. Reuploading 1GB worth of attachments now in Binary to see if that fixes it.

I have had that happen before, when FTPing attachment folders in "auto" mode. It is best to explicitly set binary mode when transferring attachments and avatars.
