Description Paul Davis 2008-04-17 15:10:48 PDT
Occasionally when posting data the actual form content is missing. At first I thought this was a result of the web framework I'm working with, but reducing the error to a small python echo server I can manage to get the bug to trigger (I think. I might also be crazy).

To reproduce, download and run the small echo server, and submit the provided test file to the provided form. It generally takes a few times, but if you keep resubmitting the form you should eventually see a post that contained no data. Occasionally a post with only partial data will be read as well.

Largish test file helps exacerbate the problem.

I'm a fucking retard. Disregard this bug.
