Yes, that is the case. It's a bug that has already been fixed. You can pick
up a nightly build if you need the fix; that's pretty safe, since nothing
else has changed since the 1.1 release.

I also noted that IE was uploading with the full path to the file, while

That's not something that Commons FileUpload has any effect on. It's
entirely up to the browser to decide what to send. I agree with you that
it's more than I'd like to expose, but there's no way around it. Well, I
guess there is - don't use IE. ;-)
