Description of problem:
There are a couple of places in the UI where there is a pop-up box to upload a file. Off the top of my head, there is adding new agent and server plugins, adding content through a Resource > Content tab, and adding content to a content repo.

On Windows *on IE8*, the pathname for the content is always given as C:\fakepath\<filename>. I have attached a screenshot. In my case, the actual location was C:\Users\elladeon\Desktop.

On FF on Windows, there is no pathname at all given, just the filename.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.1.1 ER1 (although this was also in 3.0)

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
There are a couple of places this crops up. 

Administration > Repositories > repo > Upload package
