The character encoding of transfer parameters is now assumed as UTF-8. This allows for application/x-www-form-urlencoded parameters (as described in http://www.w3.org/TR/html40/appendix/notes.html#non-ascii-chars) and for multipart/form-data encoded parameters with no character set specified. In the later case the default character set is US-ASCII, which may be decoded with UTF-8 properly. Fixed in r522.
