So, POST + application/x-www-form-urlencoded yields a null parameter
with your new payload?

I know this sounds silly, but we're getting down to the
grasping-at-straws level, here, so bear with me: have you checked to see
that your request body is actually in the correct format (that is,
urlencoded, etc.)? I haven't looked at the Tomcat code, but Tomcat might
give up if the request body is not parsable.

Have you tried calling request.getInputStream and dumping the request
body when the parameter is null? That might give you some indication of
what's happening.
