Hi, You definately need to sort out the general uploading issue before
even looking at why PmWikiDraw might be failing.  If you can get
uploads working without issue then I can relatively easily debug any
PmWikiDraw faults with you :)

I've seen this error in the past, and I can't remember what was
causing it for me,
vague recollections about temporary directories not existing or something :( 

Sorry I can't be much more help :(
