[LON-CAPA-users] essay response uploads - download all submitted documents

As currently implemented, the "Download All Submitted Documents" feature
will only retrieve files which a student has submitted to an essayresponse
problem by using the "Select Portfolio Files" link, and browsing personal
portfolio space in LON-CAPA, then selecting the file, and submitting.
A single file submitted by a student directly to the problem using the
"Browse" button to the right of the text: "Submit a file: (only one file can
be uploaded)" will not be retrieved and included in the zip file.
I'll file a bug about this in http://bugs.loncapa.org/

> All Submitted Documents which appears to try to zip up all the files in a

> Problem is, apart from the directory structure, the zipfile contains only
