In googling the problem it was suggested that changing the Content
column of the Attachments table from longtext to longblob would correct
the problem, which I did. I also reinstalled the perl module 'Encode’
as there were errors regarding that module in the log. I also read a
previous post suggesting a patch to Attachment_Overlay.pm and Web.pm,
however on inspection of those files it appears the code was already
patched. Has anyone else encountered this problem with RT3.6, on Debian
5.0.3, apache 2.2.9, perl 5.10.0.

Any advice greatly appreciated.
