I've never had this problem with prototype before. I'm querying a
twisted python web service that I wrote with a simple GET request,
returning json, but for some reason the responseText always seems to
be ".

            function make_request() {
                debug("in make_request with url " + url);
                new Ajax.Request(url, {
                    method: "get",
                    onSuccess: function(transport) {
                        debug("query successful");
                        debug("response was '" +
transport.responseText + "'");
                    onFailure: function(transport) {
                        debug("query failed");

In the browser I end up seeing

    * in make_request with url 
    * query successful
    * response was ''

And yet if I capture the traffic, the response looks fine.

So why am I not seeing it in transport.responseText ?
