Symptoms

Page hangs when uploading a file that is rejected by File Extension List.  The page displays "Processing" and error messages (if configured) do not show up.

Replication Steps:

1. Create new Absolute File Extension List GCS_TEST_EXT_LIST: PeopleTools > Utilities > Administration > Administer File Processing > File Extension List.  For example have it only accept .TXT files.
2. Create a new URL Definition that points to RECORD://PSFILE_ATTDET and associate it with the File Extension List above: PeopleTools > Utilities > Administration > URLs
3. Test with the new URL Definition on the Test Utilities page.
4. Click Attach.
5. Browse for any file that doesn't have a .TXT extension, for example a Word document.
6. Hit 'Upload'
7. Notice the page is stuck in processing, with icon spinning on top right.
