My best guess is that you're trying to uploading a file bigger than 1000
bytes (only 1k).  In my experience, the browser doesn't actually send the
file if it's bigger than MAX_FILE_SIZE.  In my scripts, I use:

<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="<?php echo ((int)
get_cfg_var("upload_max_filesize"))*1024*1024; ?>">

so that MAX_FILE_SIZE is always consistent with what php.ini allows.
