Description Alfio Puglisi 2004-09-20 14:45:44 UTC
If you leave the filename field empty and just press the "upload" button, a zero
byte file without name will be uploaded and registered in recent changes.
Attempting to edit the corresponding page will result in an invalid name error.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-09-20 15:48:46 UTC
We need to stamp out these silly problems once and for all.

Make sure it's fixed in both branches...
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-09-20 16:00:37 UTC
in cvs it reports an sql error:
(img_name,img_size,img_timestamp,img_description,img_user,img_user_text) VALUES

Taking care of this bug.
