Hi all,

I'm having a difficult time determining if this is a Mozilla .99 bug, or
something in PHP [currently using 4.0.6 under linux 2.4.8]. Using 2 small
test files:

## upload1.html ##

<html><head><title>upload test</title></head><body>
<FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" METHOD="POST" ACTION="upload2.php">
<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000">&nbsp;
<INPUT TYPE="FILE" NAME="incoming" SIZE="30" MAXLENGTH="58"><br>
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="update" VALUE="Commit Changes">
<INPUT TYPE="RESET" NAME="Reset" VALUE="Reset Changes">

## upload2.php ##

if  ($HTTP_POST_FILES['incoming']['tmp_name'] != 'none')
 echo "a file was uploaded";
 } else {
 echo "nothing was uploaded";

With Mozilla .9.4.1 [eg: Netscape 6.2.2 for windoze], Netscape 4.79, Opera
6.0.1, and IE 5.5sp2, if a user hits the submit button *without*
uploading, the proper string ["nothing was uploaded"] is returned.
However, if a user has Galeon v1.2.0 or Mozilla 0.9.9 [running under
linux], the "a file was uploaded" string will appears since
$HTTP_POST_FILES['incoming']['tmp_name'] is an empty string. From reading
the PHP docs, if no file was uploaded, 'tmp_name' should be "none", which
it is if you're using a non-Mozilla .99 based browser.

If a user does upload a file, all browsers are happy ['tmp_name' is
assigned properly].

Is this a browser/gecko bug, or a PHP bug?
