What was more of a problem was that it replaced the .htpasswd file with one of 0 bytes, immediately locking all the current users out.

It would be good to have some checking built in to stop this happening!
Where exactly did you have this problem? Under Web-FTP, when you try to password-protect a directory?

I've just tried that and couldn't reproduce it.
