I did a quick search through our bugs and found this site that breaks if 
only the filename is returned because there's an onsubmit script that 
checks the value for the presence of either a slash or backslash.


Specifically, the following code:

if((strFileName.indexOf("\\") == -1) && (strFileName.indexOf("/") == -1))
   alert("Please do not type your filename. Click Browse and upload your 
zip file.");
   return false;
