It is weird  that I can read the 2015 file and Robert can read the 2013 
file.  In any case, I suspect that the issue is end of line characters. 
  Since the file is binary, the plugin uses a (fairly simple and fairly 
crude) strategy of slurping in chunks of the file.  That might be 
getting confused by the end of line character.

Again, I don't know how to fix this problem because I don't actually 
know what an SSRL binary file is supposed to be.

Again, I would welcome a contribution.  The plugins for the DUBBLE 
beamline and for the beamlines at the Japanese synchrotrons benefited 
greatly by an interested party taking part in the development of those 
plugins (thank you Eric!  thank you Yohei!).  The SSRL plugins could use 
some similar TLC.
