Semicolons in request parameter in Rails 2.3

This may be more of a question for a Rack list, as that's what's doing
the parsing. However, I'd note that the only two incoming encodings
that the parameter parser supports are application/x-www-form-
urlencoded (which requires escaped semicolons) and multipart/form-
data. You might have more luck getting ahold of the unparsed POST body
from Rack::Request and handling it yourself.

I see. The encoding of my incoming request is supposed to be
"multipart/form-data", which does not require escaped semicolons. The
incorrect request encoding has never been much of an issue for me until
the recent Rails upgrade.

BTW this implies that the "-d" curl parameter mentioned above must be
replaced by "-F".

Thank you for your help.
