This problem is not uncommon. Many CGI scripts out there have been
written to work with IE only, and IE does not quite follow the spec with
regards to setting the correct content type and transfer encoding

To work the problem around simply set FilePart#setContentType() and
FilePart#setTransferEncoding() to null

Hope this helps
