Today I was testing the new media uploader of WP 3.5 from post editor by clicking 'Add Media'. I clicked 'upload files' and I choose a big file from my computer by a mistake. But I did not want to upload that file. Then I wanted to cancel the uploading, but there is no stop or cancel button . Then I close the popup window and open again by clicking 'Add Media' button. I see the previous file is being uploaded yet. I choose another small file and both files upload are running.

There's no way to cancel the currently uploading file from JS. See the discussion in #19050.

Maybe just add a notification if it is a big upload. Something like "Uploading these file(s) will probably take more then a minute, are you sure you want to upload them?". Maybe use the hearbeat test to estimate the actual upload speed to make an educated guess.
