------- Comment #12 from ddkilzer at webkit.org  2007-03-12 12:48 PDT -------
Robert, does submitting a form fail every time you try it with r20107, or just
sometimes?

As Darin alluded to in this comment, the server-side form parser may have
issues with some characters in the multipart/form boundary string, even though
I believe the new code is within spec (RFC 1521, Section 7.2.1;
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1521.html):

   The only mandatory parameter for the multipart Content-Type is the
   boundary parameter, which consists of 1 to 70 characters from a set
   of characters known to be very robust through email gateways, and NOT
   ending with white space.  (If a boundary appears to end with white
   space, the white space must be presumed to have been added by a
   gateway, and must be deleted.)  It is formally specified by the
   following BNF:

   boundary := 0*69<bchars> bcharsnospace

   bchars := bcharsnospace / " "

   bcharsnospace :=    DIGIT / ALPHA / "'" / "(" / ")" / "+" /"_"
                 / "," / "-" / "." / "/" / ":" / "=" / "?"

Note that Base64 encoding is a subset of bcharsnospace.
