Can you give a smaple ot the search string which you are using
if it contains a sequence widget? I guess this string is wrong
and this ends in none sequence data at the server side.

If I'm right, now you are trying to convert this simple data
string into a sequence, right?

Try to build a sequence of values as:


that's the right way to send sequence data and will give you 
the result:

text = ['foo', 'bar']

at the server side.
