    IE 6 freezes with rich:fileUpload

    Stefan - Newbie

      I'm having the problem that the Internet Explorer 6 freezes right after uploading files using Richfaces' component (upload itself works). CPU load goes up to 100%. I don't call any oncomplete-scripts and dont rerender.
      Works fine with Firefox. And furthermore, the Richfaces online demo works as well (is that a "real" file upload?).
      I stripped off any called scripts, other components, removed my style sheet, put the uploader right under the form tag, no luck.
      That's really bad because I started off with MyFaces Tomahawk which never worked at all due to strange Apache/Tomcat problems.

      Any vague suggestions welcome !
