Dropbox 1.5 Camera Upload Glitch

Has anyone else had this problem? I decided to go ahead and try the new Dropbox Camera Upload feature to see how it works from my iPhone 4s (iOS 5.1.1, 32 GB, over 9.5 GB free space on phone).

I fired up the app on my phone only to discover that I got the crash on start bug that some people reported about this update. I googled for a fix for this and found out that all I needed to do was delete the app and reinstall it either through iTunes or OTA from the App Store. Did this, restarted my phone for good measure and tried again. The app came straight up, I logged in with no problems and the Camera Upload screen appeared. I selected the Camera Roll album and the files began uploading almost immediately. Over 425 files so I figured even over WiFi it would take a while to upload, but it actually went pretty fast. Until I got to my last 15 pictures. This is where the glitch appeared. I have been stuck at approx. 50% on this file (It is a 5 minute video) for over two hours now.

I have restarted my phone, reset my network settings, deleted and reinstalled the app (AGAIN) and no luck. It seems to just stick at this point.

I checked the Dropbox FAQ's and found out that they have a max file size of 300 MB. I can't imagine that the file is that big, I have 2.45 GB of free space on my Dropbox account and I tried changing Wifi networks and even shut off Wifi to see if it would go up over 3G. Still stuck at 50%.

I can't find a way to skip this file or even shut the process down.

If you have had this problem please post here. And if you have figured out the cure post that too. Thanks for any help you can provide.
