Very strange bug. The NPE is easy to solve ( I'll check in tonight ), however
switching the encoding in a session with bad browser is not something I know how
to solve... We do our best to remember/guess the encoding in a session, and
that's quite difficult - but there's a limit on how much we can guess. The bug
is of course in the browser  that doesn't send the encoding in the first place.
If you have any sugestion on how to improve the guessing alghoritm to deal with
this case - please reopen this ( as an enhancement request - for post 3.3 ).
I'll mark it as fixed ( the NPE ), the second part would be a WONTFIX or LATER (
rather the first, as I don't know any solution and I don't want to mess with the
current guessing ). Thanks for the report.
