Can't upload files via SWFUpload

I can't upload files from my mac or any linux box. It's really odd that it works in IE8 on WinXP with the same Flash player version. I reinstalled flash with debugger, without, went back to version 9... cleared cache on the server, reset the browsers.

The SWF debug gets stuck at the upload event:

SWF DEBUG: Event: fileDialogStart : Browsing files. Multi Select. Allowed file types: *.*
SWF DEBUG: Select Handler: Received the files selected from the dialog. Processing the file list...
SWF DEBUG: Event: fileQueued : File ID: SWFUpload_0_0
SWF DEBUG: Event: fileDialogComplete : Finished processing selected files. Files selected: 1. Files Queued: 1
SWF DEBUG: StartUpload: First file in queue
SWF DEBUG: Event: uploadStart : File ID: SWFUpload_0_0
SWF DEBUG: Global Post Item: hasDataObject=0

SWF DEBUG: Global Post Item: controllerID=17
SWF DEBUG: Global Post Item: fileFieldName=Files
SWF DEBUG: Global Post Item: dataObjectClassName=File
SWF DEBUG: ReturnUploadStart(): File accepted by startUpload event and readied for upload. Starting upload to http://localhost/FileDataObjectManager_Controller/handleswfupload for File ID: SWFUpload_0_0
SWF DEBUG: Event: uploadProgress (OPEN): File ID: SWFUpload_0_0

I'm using 2.4.1, the assets folder is set to 777. Everything works fine in IE8/WinXP.

Any ideas what might be the problem or how to troubleshoot this issue? I'd appreciate any help.

Perhaps this is related to a quirky SWFUpload bug (from the SWFUpload project itself) where filenames w/ spaces get partially uploaded?

from the debug, I couldn't see the filename

This is discussed in detail here:

It started working for me after I upgraded to the most recent svn versions and reset my browsers, which deleted all cookies (as much as it hurts - wasted quite a few hours on it).
