If a page is encoded in non-Western charset and the form is submitted with method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data", the line breaks in text areas are being submitted as '&#10;' instead of '<LF>'.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached HTML file. Press Submit button.
2. Save the returned page as a plain text file (compare with the attached text file).
3. Open the text file in a text editor.

Actual Results:  
Notice the line:
Enter&#10;text&#10;with&#10;line&#10;breaks

This bug makes Firefox unusable for foreign language web-based mail services.

Sorry, actually the returned page should be saved as Web Page HTML Only. Then open it as plain text.

Looks similar to me, although they could not make it reproducible for some reason. I guess the problem occurs whenever the page is set to non-Western encoding.
Is this still a problem with current trunk builds?  I can't seem to reproduce on Linux, but maybe this is Mac-only...
