Hmmm, so the problem seem to appear on all files who have resource  
fork, both files with or without data fork.
Following those constats I would say that more generally, this  
version makes all resource fork files disappear from Finder...
So, DON'T USE IT FOR BACKUP by now, only for development test. A  
working stable version will be available soon...

Thanks for this test Rob, it proves that it's a general issue, and  
not only for 0-size data fork.
