A quick unresearched guess is that you're actually running out of space in 
your /tmp partition. File uploads with most Python Web frameworks typically 
involve creating a temporary file inside the preferred temporary storage 
location (usually /tmp), and on some systems this partition is configured to 
be rather small.
