Red Hat Linux release 6.1
Linux ******.*******.*** 2.2.12-20smp #1 SMP Mon Sep 27 10:34:45 EDT 1999 i686 u
suppose u have a form with method POST and multiple text fields. also, the data of a text-field
in this form exceeds 7K( approx ).
The form is submitted to a servlet. 
If u try to read the other fields in the form using request.getparameter, null is returned,
even if the field has a hardcoded value in the HTML page.

This is a problem with Apache 1.3.6 jserv 1.1 on Linux. On NT apache 1.3.9 jserv 1.1 it works

problem 6170 seems similar, but there is no reply to it.
Images Byte by Byte
<FORM Name="ACMForm" METHOD=POST ACTION="http://manoj:8000/QG/ImageTest">
<INPUT NAME="A1" VALUE="sdfsdfsdfsdfdsfdf" >
<TEXTAREA name="IMGDATA" >Text data exceeding 7K </TEXTAREA>
<INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME="IMGDATA1" VALUE="TExt data exceeding 7K">


when the form is submitted to a servlet on jserv 1.1 linux,
request.getParameter("A1") in the servlet returns null
Works on NT apache 1.3.9 jserv 1.1 so a comparison could provide the answer.
