1.9.0 from SourceForge doesnt work with 4.1, only CVS BRANCH-1-9 code works i.e. the tar.gz from de.tikiwiki.org

What encoding is PHP configured to use?

Its not corrupting them, its making a md5 hash of the file not the filename and then stores the file using that hash as the name. This makes it very hard for someone when stored in the file system to go directly to the download folder and "guess" filenames.

This also means that you cannot upload the same file twice in any gallery.
