Hi Michael,

Did you solve this problem? I can't see anything wrong with your
upload; the only difference between your output and the code I've put
on the wiki for a previous project is that mine uses text/xml as the
content-type for the GPX file.


On that note, I'd also encourage you to do your uploads using OAuth
instead of HTTP Basic Auth, but both should work.

I can certainly say that hand-crafting multipart form uploads is tricky!
