I looked at the bug and the two streams that were attached. I have pretty much copied the message format from the perl script and it is still returning a 500. Here is a new pastebin with the new post:

Are you talking about the name= portion of the Content-disposition? If I don't supply the name= portion how does the server know what those values correspond to?

I believe the problem is that you're supplying a name for all the fields, which causes rails (well rack actually) to think they are all files when it is only expecting one file.

Note that there is also a bug in rack which causes it to think any field with a content type is a file... See
http://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/3513 for more on that.
