A couple of thoughts:
- Be sure you open the file in binary mode ('wb' rather than 'w');
this won't help unless you are running Zope on Windows, however,
because Windows is the only platform where the C runtime will mangle
the line endings for files it thinks are "text", rather than
- You could use a StringIO instance, rather than a tempfile; YMMV.
