Even in the cases where the media files fit we won't cache Ogg files
due to having to seek to find the duration. The seek prevents the file
from entering the normal cache. For other media files (WebM) that fit
into the normal cache, 'Save As' doesn't work due  to the bug that
Greg Maxwell pointed out (499255). The same issue exists when doing
'Save As' on images.
