In the previous mail (PEAR issue), I mentioned an issue I came accross, which 
I'll describe here:
When you log in as an admin and go to Settings -> Admin, there's a File handling 
section, allowing to specify the Maximum upload size (which is 512MB after 
I changed that value to 700 MB and tried to upload a 691 MB file 
(big_buck_bunny_1080p_h264.mov) at which I was told that the upload exceeds the 
maximum size. Going back to the Admin section, I saw the maximum upload size was 
changed back to 512 MB!
My initial thought was that maybe it isn't allowed to get > 512 MB, since in 
.htaccess there's also a setting wrt to filesize and those values are set to 
Next thing I did was change the default value of 512 MB to 256 MB and clicked on 
the save button, at which I saw it was 'reset' again to 512 MB!

Changing the limits in the .htaccess file (to 768M), also changes the Maximum 
upload size in the Settings -> Admin -> File handling section.
So it looks like the edit box for the Max upload size is rather useless, since 
it won't 'override' the setting in the .htaccess file.

I haven't checked whether this is an upstream or packaging issue.
