The Map returned from HttpServletRequest is in fact a specifical class, called

This map does not allow to modify any key or value of it, and in the case the
user tries to, it launches a IllegalStateException. 

The problem is that the key string used does not exist.

So to fix this bug you need to add the parameterMap.locked key/value in
properties files of the Servlet API.

Begin of the trace :
javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot find message associated with key

There is also a little-little bug in the Javadoc of ParameterMap class :

 * Extended implementation of <strong>HashMap</strong> that includes a
 * <code>locked</code> property.  This class can be used to safely expose
 * Catalina internal parameter map objects to user classes without having
 * to clone them in order to avoid modifications.  When first created, a
 * <code>ParmaeterMap</code> instance is not locked.

public final class ParameterMap extends HashMap {

The "<code>ParmaeterMap</code>" string should be replaced by

Bye !

PS: This bug also occurs in Tomcat 3 and 4.
