C:\fakepath showing during import instead of the real file path

I noticed that when performing an import I see sometimes the strange “C:\fakepath" text before the name of the file I am trying to import, even in unix/bsd based systems which has nothing to do with the actual location of the file - there is no C:\fakepath directory in my system. What gives?

The displayed location was not created by Nuxeo. This message comes from your browser. Some browsers like IE, chrome, opera, etc are generating this fakepath entry instead of providing the real path to your file for security reasons, i.e. not to reveal the user name when uploading a file from current user's home directory.
