Bug#481975: libwebkitgtk1d: file upload does not work

Package: libwebkitgtk1d
Version: 0~svn29752-1
Severity: normal

file upload does not work with midori (content-length header send to server is
negative, so apache replys with an error page).

I could reproduce the bug with a build from webkit git repository. File upload
did not work neither with midori neither with GtkLauncher, so I opened a bug
in webkit tracker.
As far as I understood, problem came from libcurl being compiled with large
file support, and webkit not. So, 

But, I was told file upload works on other distros, so I wonder if it's a
debian bug or not. Also, I was not sure if I should send a bug to webkit or
libcurl, so please reassign if necessary.

Here is the original bug report with the informations I could gather while
trying to understand the issue:
