When uploading a file of type "other", the user may get an unresolvable form error on submission with form error message media_fid_illegal_value.
This bug results from a mismatch between (a) the file type data as stored in the file_managed table and (b) the file type data as accessed in the "allowed types" setting for a media field. In the case of a .pdf file, for example, the file_managed.type value will be "application" but this is not one of the recognized types.

Hello, I have this problem on both 7.x-1.x-dev and 7.x-1.0-beta4.
I have a custom content type and added a field of type 'Multimedia Asset' w/ 'Media File Selector' as the widget.
I create content, click Select Media and everything about it works great until I click the Submit button in which case I get the error
