 if ($postsize = ini_get('post_max_size')) {
                min(Core::getRealSize($filesize), Core::getRealSize($postsize))
        } else {
            $this->set('max_upload_size', Core::getRealSize($filesize));

This block throw an error, because getRealSize is failing if the php.ini will have shorthands (e.g. 1G).

The default php.ini is post_max_size=8M

This block throw an error, because getRealSize expects strictly an integer, but will fail if the php.ini will have shorthands (e.g. 1G).

I don't think it's true, Having a quick look at the function definition, I think it accepts the shorthands.
If the size is not in an acceptable shorthand format, it typecasts it into an integer.

Yeah, so it seems I'm a bit dumb about this new return type declaration thingy, so I misunderstood some stuff. That : int at the end of the declaration means that the method should return an integer, and not that is expecting an integer (dooh).

I'm not sure if this is specific on Windows platform, on my machine or PHP in general, but stuff looks like this. I did a bit of fidding on Core class, on method getRealSize

gettype($matches[1]) => string (value is 2)
gettype($binaryprefixes[$matches[2]]) => integer
gettype($matches[1] * $binaryprefixes[$matches[2]])  => double (value is 2147483648)

Now, this gets really interesting:

    if (preg_match('/^([0-9]+)([KMGT])/i', $size, $matches)) {
        return (int) ($matches[1] * $binaryprefixes[$matches[2]]);

If I'm doing this, the return value is -2147483648. Yup, negative.

Can anyone explain why this is happen? I mean the confusion is double:

  • why multiplying an integer with a string results in an double?
  • why casting to int converts to negative?

It's good that you mentioned that you are using windows, as stated here, the size of int in windows below php 7 is 32 bits, maybe that's why it overflows.
