Hmm. I tested and indeed, the program does not work any more. The problem is NOT that FileCounter does not supply a read() method though. There's no reason for any object to 'read' the file, it's just writing it. The problem is that mod_python seems to have forgotten somewhere that this is a file upload and not a simple name=value pair. You would not want to upload a 1GB file with this - it will eat 1GB of RAM for that. Looks like an old bug has returned to bite us.
