Hello Martin.

Thank you for your message. Would you mind answering a few clarifying  
questions, which should help us find out if this is a new instance of  
the file upload bug we had seen with IE/Win a while ago?

What version of Windows, and version of IE, are you seeing this  
problem with?
Did you have a chance to test with other version os windows/IE, or  
did you see a particular security update breaking the system?

Have you tried with other file extensions than .xml? Did you see the  
same issue with .html files, .xhtml, etc?

Last question :)
Could you quote the full message that went with 'Sorry! This
document can not be checked.'?
