To my knowledge, this is not a known issue.  In fact, I've got tons of stuff
depends on request parameters working just fine in 4.0.  I would be very
in a simple test case that can reproduce what you're seeing.

By the way, there is no "milestone 5" yet, despite the announcement of plans to
have one done.  We really want to have a workable connector that people can
and what's in CVS isn't quite there yet.
