I know, I have that same issue. The only thing I can think of is, as 
some had suggest, is that WebDAV "chunks" the files. Aka, sends them as 
bits and pieces and then re-assembles them on the server. If thats not 
it, then maybe one of the official OwnCloud devs can step in and try to 
explain it.

Also, if anyone can (assuming i was right in my earlier email) justify 
why File_Upload isnt a long int, please do so, im quite curious about it 
as it doesnt seem to give any advantage, and only serves disadvantages.
