I've reworked much of this in the last few development patches.

file-upload is (has been) an experimental feature that you have to enable
at compile-time.  I'm certain you're not running current source, since I
rewrote the code that generates the divider line this year.  There are
some unrelated bugs (which I'll flush out in dev.16), but 2.8.5dev.15
should be good enough for you to test (and perhaps tell me what I've not
done right ;-)
