HTML 5 standard specifically: http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/number-state.html#file-upload-state

"For historical reasons, the value IDL attribute prefixes the filename with the string "C:\fakepath\". Some legacy user agents actually included the full path (which was a security vulnerability). As a result of this, obtaining the filename from the value IDL attribute in a backwards-compatible way is non-trivia

Patrick found this issue in Safari after the latest Safari upgrade. (Jul 26 2011)
This fakepath issue is reported on IE8 also but we cannot reproduce it in Nipuna's environment.

The cause for fakepath:
http://speakingofcomputers.blogspot.com/2010/04/getting-fakepath-in-file-browse.html
"The problem happens because,according to the latest HTML5 specification,the file upload control will not reveal the original file path of your computer.It will always show you "fakepath"."

As part of our continuous effort to improve product quality, The Hyperic product team has decided to implement a "zero bug policy" methodology.

Following this methodology, only defects that are planned to be handled in the near future will remain open. Any other defect will be deferred, with the option to be reevaluated if the need arises, or if changes to the Hyperic road-map make such defect a candidate for a fix.

We believe this new process will help create clarity and focus in the Hyperic road-map and ultimately benefit our customer base.

This bug has been deferred as part of the new policy.

We appreciate your cooperation and continues contribution to the improvement of Hyperic.
