Doesn't happen if README is a file rather than a symlink, doesn't happen when
using http. The ftp downloader apparently has a bug..

This definitely is a bug. I've attached a small fix for this particular issue. If no one has any issues with it, I'll push it in a day.

Although, I think we should also look into the issue Giuseppe found, and also the point that Angel raised about compatibility with shell like redirection.

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
