[mythtv] mythutil --copy not always working

Can anybody confirm that mythutil --copy is still working for them?

I'm trying to copy a file from a FE to the master BE but it always fails 
with an ERROR, couldn't write at offset xxx were xxx is often 0 but 
sometimes a random number. Oddly going in the other direction, copying 
from BE to the FE,  seems to work OK the few times I tried it.

This is the command I'm running :-
mythutil --copyfile --infile 
/media/mytharchive/work/Test/6001_20130101195900.mpg --outfile 

Any pointers on how to debug this?
