Problem reading binary files - news26.txt [1/1]

I am using Mathematica 2.2.1 for windows 3.1 and I have found a problem 
when reading binary files, e.g. ReadList["bin.raw",{<<listofByte>>}]
where bin.raw is a file of size Length[listofByte].

It seems that the problem occures when ReadList finds a binary sequence 
coerresponding to decimal 26 (ascii=^z SUB) this sequence Mathematica interprets as a 
EndOfFile and the rest of the file is not read in (the rest of listofByte is filled with
EndOfFile ). What is the cure for this?

I have tried: 
1 Mathematica ver. 2.2.3
2 reading characters instead
3 using the package BinaryFiles

with the same result
