You can track the bug report I just filed:

Or else: How is body length precomputed then communicated?

Not sure exactly what you mean; in my case I worked around the bug by computing the body length
(by adding up the sizes of the attachment files and MIME boundary strings) then set that as
a Content-Length header on the request; this tells the HTTP library I use (NSURLConnection
on Mac OS) not to use chunked encoding.
