[pmwiki-users] problem with uploads changing file names

I am uploading files with names like this:

07_Our Business Processes - Lepingwell, ABCD.pdf

which is: paper number, underscore, paper title, dash, Author(s), 
comma, organization, dot PDF

PmWiki is renaming the files when uploading them - dropping the 
commas. This is particularly bothersome when there are 2 or more 
comma-separated Authors.

If I FTP the files to the server, (:attachlist:) is quite happy to 
display them with all commas intact. Since the authors do not have 
FTP access for uploads, this is a bug or a severe limitation.

Is there a solution? For now I am FTPing the files myself and then 
fixing the commas in the Attach: markup. Not a pretty sight.
