i'm guessing this has something to do with the default line terminators that
medusa is looking for before it senses that a data buffer is ready to be
processed. it seems like the url encoded ones request seem to have different
line terminators. you can adjust this the fly by using the set_terminator()
func on the dispatcher. set_terminator can look for either a set of input
chars, or you can adjust the data buffers to fire off for processing on
hope that helps
