Description Maxim Kuleshov 2008-10-27 23:37:52 UTC
How to reproduce bug.

Configure tomcat connector with URIEncoding=UTF-8 attribute.
Make a simple page that write out any request parameter. Configure this page as protected with form-based authentication.
Try to access page, e.g.


where q=%xx%yy%zz is value in UTF-8 charset.

When page is being accessed for the first time, then after authentication, parameter "q" is incorrectly interpreted (it seems as it was in ISO8859-1 or anything else, but not UTF-8).

But subsequent access to the _same_ URI, i.e.

gives perfect result.

I also tried useBobyEncodingForURI=true and request.setCharacterEncoding("UTF-8") - nothing is changed.
