FWIW, I just created a text file using *notepad*, containing 
"1234567890" (without pressing enter after that line, and without the 
quotes) and the length is shown to be exactly 10 bytes (by 
rightclick-properties and dir).
This file can be used as --passphrase-file for a key that I generated to 
use 1234567890 as passphrase.

cu, Sven
