I just had someone upgrade my moodle installation to the latest beta. This morning I discovered that when I try to upload a file or create a folder, I get the following errors (see below). Unfortunately, the person who did the install won't be around for a few days. The /uploaddata directory exists and all subdirectories have permission levels set at 755, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Could it be something to do with the fact that the file/folder address has too many forward slashes (courses/uploaddata/1//E1.mp3')? Does anyone have any suggestions?

An unknown problem occurred while uploading the file 'E1.mp3' (perhaps it was too large?)
