This is nothing to worry about, it simply means that the size of the 
data the client is sending isn't known when it starts. (This is because 
it compresses the data as it sends it.)

Possibly. I'll try out some large files.

But in the meantime, could you

1) Enable ExtendedLogging on the clients. You should then see what file 
they're failing on, as the client will show the actual filename instead 
of "OPAQUE" -- the server can't tell what the filenames are.

2) Verify a store, and see if it's missing anything.

Thanks,

Ben
