[wp-hackers] Media upload problem with Flash

I'm seeing an error with the flash-based media uploader that so far I
havne't been able to track down. With Firefox 3 and Flash 9, when I try
to upload an image I get this error on the screen:
At the top it says "HTTP error."
Then download lower where it'll usually say "Crunching..." right below
that I see this error:
"An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later."
This particular server is running Apache2 with PHP 5, and file
permissions for the entire wp-content directory three are set to 777,
and the proper subdirs to exist (e.g. 2008/11).
I've heard that this might be due to some sort of PHP settings but I'm
not sure about that.
Anybody have a clue why this happens? The regular HTML-based uploader
works fine. But not with Flash 9.
