           Summary: Attachment names unnecessarily contracted
           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: sherlock at genome.stanford.edu

When attaching a file for upload in a form (e.g. try any bugzilla bug report)
the name of the selected file is contracted if it is over a certain length,
with characters in the middle being replaced with periods.  This happens even
when there is more than enough space to display the full name.  Frequently,
this will make the file name ambiguous, and can be confusing when looking to
see if you filled in a form correctly, where multiple files are attached (such
as when submitting a scientific manuscript to a journal).  If there is enough
space to display the full name, it would be great if the full name could be

Tested with Safari 3.1.1 and r34522
