[Haskell-cafe] haskell flickr bindings: "invalid signature" when uploading

I've mailed the maintainer of the flickr api package but thought I
would see if other people had this experience too. Google doesn't
reveal many people using this package as far as I can tell.

In short, authentication works fine but uploading images fails with
this message. This happens with the included examples/Uploader.hs as
well as my own code.

toRequest: POST request contains 1 files; unable to represent as query string
Defaulting to multiform/form-data instead
Flickr error:

 Code: 96
 Type: Flickr API error
 Details: Invalid signature

I haven't had a chance to dive deeper into this yet, but any advice
gratefully received.
