I've got these two problems with FileUploadFields on my recent project. If I'm logged in as admin, there are no problems, when I'm Content Author, I get two errors:

If I want to remove a file from my page I get:
Error: Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'removefile' does not exist on 'ReadonlyField'

(There are several ReadonlyFields from the translation and one I created for myself)

If I want to add an existing file, the field doesn't show the contents of the selected folder and throws an HTTP Error (500).
Has anyone those errors too?

Here's the code:

// Adding a Simulation
 	 		$simulation = new FileUploadField('Simulation',_t('VEHICLEPAGE.SIMULATION','Simulation'));
 				$simulation->uploadFolder = 'simulations/'.$this->URLSegment;
 			$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.AttachedFiles", $simulation);
 			$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.AttachedFiles", new TextField('Simulation_URL',_t('VEHICLEPAGE.SIMULATIONURL','Simulation_URL')));
 	  	$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.AttachedFiles", new ReadonlyField(
   			$name = "hinweis2",
   			$title = "ACHTUNG",
   			$value = "Simulationen muessen gezippt werden, sonst kann kein Upload erfolgen."

If I choose my existing folder, the error appears while loading

I can only figure this out on the translated versions of the page.
