what i see that if i use a client who sends the request without split it 
in chunks the 3rd party module works, otherwise i see in the logs the 
request body completely messed up! the client that fails is a Microsoft
Web service which splits the request in 1024 bytes long chunks, while
the Java client send the request in a single 5785 bytes chunk ( the 
lenght of the request ) and that works !!

not see the underlying representation (e.g. chunked or not).  However that impression may
be due to me usually working with output filter..  The same may not be the same for input
from the client.
