I'd definitely start with the firebug XmlHttpRequest logging to see
what's being posted to the server. Is the problem on the js side or the
 perl side? From there, it should be pretty easy to add a model to the
jifty TestApp and a small test file which reproduces the problem using
Test::WWW:Mechanize. Once you've done that, send a patch to jifty-devel,
and make it all our problem ;)
