Description of problem:

The content-type header is corrupt, as are possibly others. The content type header in particular cauases issues with the following URL:

Essentially, the jbossweb (Tomcat) FormAuthenticator looksup a previous request and merges it with the current request headers. However, the coyoteRequest actually maintains a copy of the one of the MessageBytes objects from the previous set of headers.

During the copy process, this becomes corrupt, and can be filled with the value from a different header.

This occurs during login to the bpel_console.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Consistent, but only with certain client browser/os combinations.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup EAP behind an httpd proxy running mod_ajp
2. Attempt to login to the bpel-console
3. The process will appear to hang, and the server will display an exception indicating an invalid content-type

Expected results:

Login to complete normally
