Yes, I have run into the same thing with large files, where the 
incoming progress messages hit some point about 99% of the way through 
the upload (using "post", btw) and then constantly returning the same 
number of bytes uploaded. I found that if I let it run long enough to 
match the rest of the bytes (i.e. if it was uploading at 30K/sec and it 
stalled with 300K left on a 150MB file, I would let it wait for at 
least 10 seconds), and then terminated the upload, it would actually be 
at the destination fully uploaded.

I thought it was just me, but I'm glad I'm not the only one. Now that 
Dave has suggested checking the result of the post for errors, I'll see 
if I can make that work. If not, I'll post my results.
