           Summary: File input value reset in two methods.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs

The current version of Safari does not reset the value of a file input object
if it is reassigned to another form object like so:

  var f = document.getElementById('upload_file_ele');

However, the latest nightly of WebKit resets the value so that the file input
will read "No file selected."  This will cause issues for me in the future as I
am developing an AJAX script that depends on the behavior of Safari as it
currently stands because it monitors the upload of each file individually, and
I have to assign each file input to a seperate form object in order to do so. 
There is a similar behavior which is present in the latest versions of Safari
and Webkit which are not present in Firefox or Opera, in which if the
cloneNode(true) method is invoked on a file input element then the value is not
cloned.  This was the first way I tried to solve my before-mentioned problem.
