Below is a dump curtousy of tcpdump.  It is for a form.  Why does
HTTP_POST_VARS not include all that was passed in the form?  %7E is ~
which used to be -, neither work.  It doesn't matter how I parse it, it
always gives me just the first few parameters.  I am using php-3.0.15-2
as distributed in RedHat 6.2.  I have not tried it with php-4RC1 yet.

(use of dump_aray($HTTP_POST_VARS) as found in a book by David Medinets... this is just to have a clean output, but it does show the problem)
