I am not the developers behind this, just another user, but if I
remember correctly, there is a program performing some validation after
the upload (to ensure is valid SVG or something like that).
For large and/or complex files, it takes a *long* time and is timing
out. I believe at some point the timeout value was increased, since we
had the problem very frequently.
