Testing environment

The problem is on the filename field on many UploadedFiles registers inside the database. If that filed is null the bug happens.

I opened some CMS pages to search by the files and that fails too. This problem may be brokeing some other views.

The problem comes (very probably) on the creation and that is probably from attachment_fu plugin.

A way to find broken UploadedFiles is that:
bfs = Article.find_by_sql("select * from articles where type='UploadedFile' and filename is null")

A good solution is to duplicate the uploaded file, because the original one can be changed after is was published. The duplication should be done with Attachment Fu =>, mimetype)), because this way the meta data is correctly stored and the file is correctly uploaded to its location. There must be also a migration to do this with the old stuff.
