Large HTTP requests (for instance form submissions from FusionReactor's user interface) are not processed in their entirety:
FusionReactor's internal webserver has a primitive buffer to coalesce incoming requests. It believes that the first chunk of data supplied by the TCP/IP stack contains the whole request.
This is not always true:
The resolution is to make the receiver buffer more aggressive about consuming subsequent data chunks.
Customers with FusionReactor 4.0.3 only should apply the attached Hotfix 2539, which resolves the issue.
Instructions for applying the hotfix are supplied in instructions.txt within the hotfix zip file.
Customers with 4.0.x versions prior to 4.0.3 should use the latest 4.0.x install/updater package from the FusionReactor website to update their FusionReactor Administration Manager instance (and then the individual instances in Instance Manager), then apply this hotfix.
Hotfixes are cumulative: any future hotfixes on the FusionReactor 4.0.x stream, up to but not including the next minor point release (4.1.0), will contain this hotfix (and all earlier hotfixes since the last point release).
The installer/updater for the next minor point release (4.1.0), will roll up and install all previously-issued issued hotfixes.
We may decide, at our discretion, to release a full suite of installers on the 4.0.x maintenance stream at some future point. This will also incorporate hotfixes whose version numbers are the same or less than that of the installer. This means that this hotfix will be included in a potential future installer whose version is 4.0.4 or greater.
After installation, FusionReactor's "About" page should identify itself as Revision: 4.0.3, Build: n/a.n/a.n/a (this is an ad-hoc build with no detailed build taxonomy).
