Ack. And attachtable.tar.gz contains all files of the lean version.

I see. The whole Exif and mp3 stuff didn't work on my LAN webserver
(old XAMPP on ancient NT4) where I tested initially.

Now I find another cosmetic issue: The file info popup can extend the
bottom of the browser window. In this situation, it's somewhat hard to
scroll down. I guess that many people will not be able to find a
solution. No problem for me (I even won't use the file info because I
have no "media" files).

Although you could handle $HandleAuth['deldelattach'] differently if
$EnableUploadVersions is disabled, I wouldn't bother. People have to
set $HandleAuth['deldelattach'] accordingly.

Regarding the question whether JavaScript prompts and confirmations
shuld be replaced by HTML pages: Only if it's not a lot of work to
implement and if the user interface remains clear. IMO people can be
forced to allow JavaScript for such tasks.
