[Cdash] Attaching images to Test results

Actually, seems to be even more things that are broken in that area,

CTest propery ATTACHED_FILES gets uploaded to cdash with the following xml
<NamedMeasurement name="Attached File" encoding="base64"
compression="tar/gzip" filename="foo.c" type="file">, then the Value is a
Base64 encoded string.
In CDash it just gets shown as a undecoded Base64 string.
