            Bug ID: 59095
           Summary: When $wgAllowCopyUploads and
                    $wgCopyUploadsFromSpecialUpload are true, the filename
                    of the source is no longer copied into the
                    "destination filename" field
           Product: MediaWiki

When $wgAllowCopyUploads and $wgCopyUploadsFromSpecialUpload are true, the
filename of the source is no longer copied into the "Destination filename" when
you use the "Source filename" option or the "Source URL" option. That behavior
in either of these situations could be considered a bug or a feature, depending
on how much one trusts one's users to select good filenames, but there should
be a way to configure it. E.g., if it's a private wiki then it's probably
merely a nuisance to not have it automatically copied over. The worst of it is
that when you've selected the filename using Browse, it won't even let you copy
the filename. (I tested this in FireFox and Chrome.)

One way would be to have separate special pages, one for each option (Source
filename or Source URL), rather than have a radio button. It's probably better
to find another way, though, if possible.
