[wp-hackers] File Upload problems with Safari on Mac OS X?

Mike, I've had the same problem with Safari while using the Flash uploader but the problem is intermittent and defaulting back to the browser uploader has worked for me. I don't think it's related specifically to wordpress (ha! auto correct that) however as the flash plugin has been crashing off and on for a white now.

To be honest I assumed it was part of the Apple vs. Adobe throw down or a Safari 5 glitch.
