[mod_python] Problems with mp_request.read(length)

I have been experimenting with mod_python.util.FieldStorage() and  
changing it so it will recognize and use Content-Length for a  
particular field.

I noticed that if I make a call to req.read(length) where length is  
greater than 65646 the data is corrupted.  You can try different  
numbers and find what the boundary exactly is for your system.  It is  
a very weird error. Using req.readline(length) would behave perfectly  
(assuming there are no new lines in the data).

Does anyone has an idea why this could happen?
