Description: ------------ Working with the file element on Windows gives broken "tmp_name" value: D:/phptempphp2C.tmp instead of D:/phptemp/php2C.tmp (or D:/phptemp\php2C.tmp which causes the error) Moving the files works without problems but _ruleIsUploadedFile() returns always false because is_uploaded_file($elementValue['tmp_name']) fails with the broken "tmp_name" value. Replacing '\' with '/' before the call to $this->_submitFiles = $this->_recursiveFilter('stripslashes', $_FILES); (line 260 of QuickForm.php) should solve this.

I've stepped into the same problem. It seems to me that only the 'name' element of a $_FILES item should be passed trough stripslashes. At most you can also process 'type', but 'tmp_name' shouldn't be processed at all. The value contained in there is generated at the server so it never gets slashes added to it.
