The filefield_widget function sets the form encoding type incorrectly, erasing any other attributes that may exist on the form. It currently does $form['#attributes'] = array('enctype' => 'multipart/form-data');. What it should do is $form['#attributes']['enctype'] = 'multipart/form-data';, possibly checking first to make sure that the #attributes element exists and is an array.

In particular, the current mechanism will erase any custom classes that may have been added to the form previously.

Oddly we were doing it correctly in 2 places but not in the third. This patch corrects the problem and has been applied to CVS. It will be in the 3.2 version.
