Fixing Pop-up File Uploads in 3.16

In Movable Type 3.16, using the Upload File feature to create a pop-up doesn’t work quite right. If specifying a directory to upload to (such as a dynamic upload directory), the “
/” character get converted to its HTML entity—”
%2f.” Obviously, that renders the file path invalid, and your pop-up doesn’t work.
Reverting to an earlier-version subroutine seems to fix it. Just replace the subroutine
_process_post_upload (starting at around line 1900 in
lib/MT/App/CMS.pm. (The MT license prohibits me from recreating the code here, though copying and pasting it yourself is easy enough.)
