can't attach image
Could not attach a PNG of 112K to a message. After uploading, the pop-up window went blank instead of showing the post-upload information and offering the "close window" button.

Can you upload the PNG to the web so I can grab it and troubleshoot this?

I put it at but I'm running into some network and display troubles, so the problem could very well be entirely on my end of the connection.

Problem's on this end. It's a thumbnailing issue with GD and the libpng PHP library. Downgrading libpng to version 1.0.x is listed as a possible solution, but I think disabling PNG thumbnails is a better option than downgrading the library. I've disabled thumbnailing of PNG images. Now, they can still be attached, but no thumbnails.

That's actually a relief, not that I'm glad you hit a bug. I have some troubles here that I think are a combination of some paranoid settings for an NFS server, my ISP's nameservers and my use of a closed nVidia driver with some barely beta software. I hate it when one bug hides another in layers.

Sounds like fun ;). I'm at the point where I've committed to a reasonable amount of bugs being ever-present. I'll spend a certain amount of time troubleshooting a bug, depending on how important it is, or how many people are experiencing it, or how long until I think we'll be upgrading the feature that is probably contributing to the bug. If I can't nail it within that time frame, I try and walk away. The time I save goes into researching and developing new ideas for the site. Either that, or drinking beer.
