For some files, file.copy() doesn't copy these files correctly.

Here you will find a file (Bitmap, 769Kb) to reproduce the problem:

 file.copy("c:/test1.bmp", "c:/test2.bmp", overwrite = TRUE)
produces a second file with the size of ~1.4 Mb:

To reduce size, I put both files into following zip archive:

Using file.copy() with the same file on Solaris and Linux works fine.
