In Karrigell,  this upload script works in IE and firefox,   and the basics
are similar to yours.

import os
f = _myfile.file # file-like object
dest_name = os.path.basename(_myfile.filename)
out = open('c:/WINNT/Profiles/tw/Desktop/webupload/'+dest_name,'wb')
# copy file
import shutil
print "File Uploaded Succesfully" #print to browser

Maybe your cgi is returning something strange, have you tried some print
statements to see what's going on at various parts of the script ?
