> Apple Safari does this thing where each file wich is downloaded from the web gets an attribute appended (it some kind of meta-information -->  xattr)  the attribute is called com.apple.quarantine.
Okay, I agree

> Observation:
> in typo3temp/compressor/merge-XXXXXXX.css there are weird lines with wrong character encodings. mostly the only readable part is "com.apple.quarantine" these lines are written everywhere in this css file.
> What i think is happening:
> When opening the BE the "merger" is activated. To merge all those css files it needs to "download" them first.
It doesn't download them, t3lib_compressor reads the files from the file 
system and merges them together. There's no HTTP involved and in no way 
the client is involved in this process, except triggering the creating 
of compressed files, if they don't exist.

> unfortunately right now i have no example data. It works since i deleted these lines per hand and i kind of dont want to do this again. ;)
Okay, so it might be really hard to debug. As pointed out, the client is 
not involved in the process, thus I have no clue, what's going on there 
and how the com.apple.quarantine gets into there. If it happens again, 
please send me the file!

Kind regards
