I don't dispute the observation, but neither the original code nor the patch makes sense. At that line, handleUploadProgressResults is NOT called; it's a reference which will be non-null, hence the Boolean will be true. It's a convoluted way of expressing 'true'. That argument to XMLHttpRequest() *should* be true - false makes the request blocking (synchronous), which is always a bad idea as it can hang the browser. If false makes the code work, something else is broken. Perhaps there is some global variable that should be in a closure. This needs more investigation...

This communication may not represent my employer's views, if any, on the matters discussed.
