Description Gregory Maxwell 2007-10-01 22:03:46 UTC
When you upload a file named whatever.badextension.goodextension such as foo.exe.ogg or bar.php.jpg you get an error of the form:

".ogg" is an unwanted file type
List of allowed file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg, xcf, pdf, mid, sxw, sxi, sxc, sxd, ogg, svg, djvu

This is confusing and not helpful. The expected behavior would at least be ".exe.ogg" is an unwanted file type, even smarter might just be to rename the file for the user.
