Bug description:  MIME type gets added to variable using POST method

Every time I try to use POST to submit variables or files to a form it seems to add 
the mimetype to the variable. (GET seems to work fine, but then I can't upload files)

If I upload a Jpeg file, it adds "Content-Type: image/jpeg" to the variable. or if I 
submit a "TEXT AREA" to the script it adds "Content-Type: application/octet-stream" to 
the variable.

I also noticed that a normal TEXT variable gets some extra whitespace added to it in 
the script, so I had to use trim() to remove that.

I found a workaround for the file-upload bug somewhere :

function fix_php_upload_bug($tmp) { 
        $infile=fopen($tmp,"r"); // Open the file for the copy 
        $outfile=fopen("$","w"); // create a new temp file 
        $header=fgets($infile,255); //get the 1st line (netscape sometimes doesn't add 
a Content-type line) 
        //if its more than just a \r\n sequence then 
        if (strlen($header)>2) $header=fgets($infile,255); //get next line also 
        while(!feof($infile)) { // Loop through the remaining file 
        fwrite($outfile,$temp,strlen($temp)); //copying contents to new temp file 
        copy("$","$tmp"); //replace the original with our new bug fixed file 
        unlink("$"); //and delete the new file 
        return filesize($tmp); //return a true file size
