The Django debug HTML page is great for finding bugs in templates and view functions. However, if you have an error in a view function with a request object that contains a - say - 200MB file object, well, then your browser dies a slow and painful death. At least my trusted Firefox does.

I've created a patch to suppress the file object in the debug view. There might be better ways to do this, I'm a Python beginner. This is the shortest and less intrusive way I could come up with.
