Looks like this is probably triggering fts/metadata.py:51
if 'file_size' in md: if md['file_size'] != filestate.getFileSize(): raise InvalidMetadata("Metadata for '%s' says size is %d, but actual size is %d" %( filestate.getFileName(), md['file_size'], filestate.getFileSize()))
'cause the md['file_size'] is a string, not an int..

- Subject changed from FTS raises an exception when trying to raise an exception... to FTS traceback when file size in extracted metadata is the wrong type
md['file_size'] is supposed to be a int or long, so I blame the user. But I think an explicit type check is a more user-friendly way of enforcing this. Or maybe we should just accept anything convertible to a long (I think samweb does this when you give it the metadata).
(It's not really raising an exception while raising an exception - that's just how twisted reports exceptions from deferred object invocation. Exceptions aren't really compatible with asynchronous callback style.)
