Subject: post operations with multipart/form-data

Hi FastCGI lovers,

I'm having a problem on an HP-UX 10.10 machine using
fastcgi with the cgi-fcgi program. I was playing around with the 
examples and changed the echo.html form to use the 
enctype="multipart/form-data" mime type for file upload. This works 
fine for small ( < ~ 2048) files but anything over that causes the 
program to hang the second time the form is used.

the FCGI programs, libs, examples, etc., all seemed to compile fine.

Any ideas what it is, or where to start looking?
