Exactly, I do not see a reason to save original filename of uploaded file especially when you already take 

md5( mt_rand() )

for it.

Surely your solution is to give it a filename, even if it's just a letter or number.

We block files starting with a ., and the forum software tries to retain the original name to make the URLs somewhat identifiable. It is an oversight that they would come into conflict, but the solution here for now is to rename your image to something other than ..png, and I don't know that it necessarily justifies work to fix it.
