Can't attach files from directories other than current
Attaching files from a directory other than current posts a file of zero length.
After careful consideration, I've decided that I probably won't get this bug in for M12. Currently I have nearly 50 bugs scheduled for M13, so there is a possibility that this bug may need to be moved out farther still.
QA Contact update.
Moving to M15 as this will only be hit by users attaching files from the non-current directory. Usually users will use the Browse... button and select the file using the File Open dialog, making its directory current and avoiding this. (I think. ;-> )
Eric, how are you attaching the files from directories other than the current one? Are you using a convention like ../one_up_from_current/this_file.foo in the File Name field?
I think the problem is that the file picker dialog just returns the filename and not a fully qualified path. Either a relative ../ style path or an absolute /u/user/public/file/... style path would work.
This works for me in today's build. Marking WORKSFORME. Thanks!
