rich.fileUpload breaks form action in portal

Solution In Progress - Updated -


In a RichFaces portlet, when a rich:fileUpload is submitted (i.e. files are uploaded), the action of the form is not preserved well.

The form is broken after rich:fileUpload with immediateUpload="true" is submitted because the richfaces packed.js richfaces.ui.FileUpload.prototype submit function manipulates the form action without restoring the original action.

Using a separate form is not an option for us, since we heavily rely on a facelet template which already defines a form.
