           Summary: File uploads only work erratically with certain files
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: shy at driftbit.com

There seem to be certain characteristics that a file can posses that prohibits
it from being uploaded reliably.
The Photoshop-generated JPEG I'll attach, for example, has about a 50% chance
to go through. (After re-saving it from another Image editor, stripping it from
most of the meta-data, it goes through fine.)
In the event that it fails, what happens is that Safari claims to be contacting
the server, while it actually doesn't transmit any data — or at least not the
amount of data necessary for the file upload. (I draw this conclusion from
observing the activity lights on my modem/router and the fact that these
requests don't leave a trace in the server logs.) Then after a while Safari
reports that the server isn't responding.
