Have you tried to copy the file via tftp from the server node:

# tftp localhost
# get "blah"

See if that works.

I was seeing something similar to this on RHEL5 this past week.
I haven't got an answer yet, but it seemed that I could only
transfer files that ended in .bin.  I wonder if it is a security
or selinux issue, but I haven't tracked it down yet.
