Jim, are these going into a Mysql table? I seem to rememeber having trouble
uploading over 20MB into a mysql table as Mysql itself has some sort of
insert file size limit. Changing that fixed everything.

It was Kevin that figured it out after my testing revealed very distinct
failing around a certain file size, which I think was 20MB.

It was so long ago, I no longer rememeber many details though. But if you
are inserting this upload into Mysql - that is definitely what it is.
