It should be in either HTTPBody or HTTPBodyStream. The code that sets  
it up inside WebKit is the setHTTPBody function inside the  
FormDataStreamMac.mm source file, in case you're building your own  
WebKit and debugging with that.

You should make a small test application to demonstrate what's not  
working. Then you can either file a bug, or the process of trying to  
make a small test will show you what's going wrong in your application.
