When you have FileField (or ImageField) and use Django on Windows, second time uploaded filename is always considered invalid.
Ie. you can create one instance, but you can't go back and edit this one and save. You always get:

Enter a valid filename.

The issue is in

\django\trunk\django\db\models\fields\ on line 579

os.path.abspath(os.path.join(settings.MEDIA_ROOT, field_data)):

will give:

while this



You can see missing Drive name.

         return field_list

Pitty I spent a whole day, before I found it.

The current patch did not solve what seems to be the same problem for me. A forward slash appended to the beginning "field_data" was causing "os.path.abspath(os.path.join(settings.MEDIA_ROOT, field_data))" to return an incorrect path and raise a validation error.
