Form handling by rails

Hi guys, I’m writing a sinatra app that interfaces to a Rails core, authenticating with OAuth and making requests to the main service.
I’m experiencing a weird behaviour and I hope that someone can give me a clue about what’s happening here.

By inspecting request and response I noticed something very weird.

Sorry if this is long.

This is my request from Sinatra to Rails (only the query hash):

“rack.request.query_hash”=>{“contest”=>{“it”=>{“brief”=>“

Vi lanciamo un contest originale, che avr\303\240 sviluppi professionali interessanti per chi ne risulter\303\240 vincitore. (…)”}}}

This is how Rails handles it:

Parameters: {“it”=>“brief

Vi lanciamo un contest originale, che avrà sviluppi professionali interessanti per chi ne risulterà vincitore.(…)”}

It basically flattens everything in there.

Maybe I’m mistaken and I’m doing something wrong (as usual), but it seems Rails has a problem here handling parameters in the correct way. I also posted the same question to the OAuth gem ML, but by looking at the code of the gem I don’t see anything strange.
