Hi folks,
I'm working with Benjamin on the Matterhorn team to get the Uploader  
working for them as well. They could also use a patch for this bug.

There doesn't seem to be any chatter about this bug on the SWFUpload  
forums which makes me wonder if there is something about our  

I'll let you know if I figure anything out.
