Bug Description

Hello there, I tried uploading a file which was 40.5MB where it stated that the allowed file was 8.5MB. I was expecting an instant validation of "The file you are attempting to upload is bigger than allowed size" or something along those lines but it kept spinning until I stopped it.

Can someone cast an iron eye on that for me please? Here is the URL:

I have applied several patches that assure proper file upload error handling and introduced MAX_FILE_SIZE hidden field wherever filebrowser pieform is used (this is applied to master, sorry for not mentioning this patch in the commit message):

    976451f83 filebrowser: File upload errors are not catched (bug #634147)
    2b6daab1c filebrowser: introduced MAX_FILE_SIZE hidden field
    88881404a Consider that post_max_size is the whole POST content (bug #634829)

    f11ccc937d comment: exit from add_feedback_form_submit in case of quota exception

Though there is still a case when user will not get an error. If post-max-size error is triggered, it will not be processed properly. I have created another bug for this problem:
