In the base64_encode function the param is a string
and you determine the length with 

(from the source:)

unsigned char *base64_encode(const unsigned char *string) {
const unsigned char *current = string;
int length = strlen(string);

If you use real binary data the length is wrong if 
there is a 0x00 char somewhere in the data.

Most functions are not yet binary safe in 3.0, that'll
be addressed in 3.1
