Which image are you using? I have experienced this issue on older versions of the image. For those cases the fix was that you had to create a kernel patch for the files:
The patches needed to be done are described in https://github.com/01org/edison-linux/commit/c2ab5bf3c8a9cd2f884d2ee44bb695427a1cce2d
Try that and let us know if it helps.
For your second question, if you would like to send a file instead of a string of characters through Bluetooth, then my suggestion is that you use Obex instead of SPP. In section 6.13 of the Intel® Edison Bluetooth* Guide, you can find how to transfer files using Obex-FTP through Bluetooth.
I hope this helps, I will glad to help you if otherwise, let us know.
