When file overwriting is not enabled in fileUpload(), then the exception mentions "cffile tag".


  if(structCount(FORM)) {
<cfform enctype="multipart/form-data">
  <cfinput type="file" name="filedata" />
  <cfinput type="submit" name="upload" />

Steps: Submit the same file twice.

Error: "FileOverwriteException - File overwriting is not permitted in this instance of the cffile tag."

It shouldn't say "cffile tag", b/c this is fileUpload().  It should probably say: "File overwriting was not enabled."
