Upload core product.

Our authentication required podcasting server uses JFile Upload for all uploaded files (video, audio, PDF, ePub). MacOS X 10.6,7 &8 users cannot use the drag and drop part of the UI. They are compelled to use the less intuitive (to them) GetFile interface instead. I have filed this bug with Apple on numerous occasions and have received email acknowledgement that this is a "known problem" but nothing ever gets fixed. Could this be something the matter with the applet?
There is a workaround to move the applet on desktop (Cmd+Shift + Select applet and move it) and then D&D will work (see screenshot). Could it help?The other solution is that we would implement a JFrame (i.e. window) that will display over the applet and browser.
We've implemented the JFrame workaround as an option in JFileUpload 3.0.
You can enable it by adding the following parameter:
<PARAM NAME="maincontainer" VALUE="frame-mac">
It will display a frame window over the applet at loading on MacOSX only.
The frame will stay "on top" but one can minimize it.
This workaround should be considered as experimental. Any feedback is welcome here.
You can try it at:

See screenshot. Notes:
- The frame will not move when the browser window is moved.
- The frame is displayed always on top.
- It has been tested under Mountain Lion with JRE 1.7.0_13 and Safari 6.0.2
I get the following error on the demopage:
