Description Damian Jansen 2013-08-05 20:26:46 EDT
Description of problem:
If, for whatever reason, a txt file is moved or deleted while an admin is in the process of uploading, the file is still created on the server sans content of the original file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a txt file on system with some content, echo "Blah whatever" >testfile.txt
2. Sign in as admin/maintainer
3. Go to a project, project version
4. Go to Source Documents, select Upload Document
5. Click browse, navigate to and select the testfile.txt
6. With the Upload dialog still in view, move or delete the testfile.txt
7. Press Upload

Actual results:
File is uploaded. Downloading this file results in an empty file being received.

Expected results:
Transaction failed.

Additional info:
This seems to occur only on Chrome and with a specific set of profile settings in Firefox. Pressing Upload in Firefox seemingly has no action other than a page reload.

Since the multi-file upload dialog is only used in one of a few upload locations, I suspect that commit may not completely fix this issue. Am I mistaken about this?

I think the other instances are handled differently.
