I got the error, “the data area passed to the system call is too small” posting to this site. The problem was using HTTP GET for very long strings. Using HTTP POST with the exact same text works fine. Posting from Mozilla 1.0 to IIS 5. Absolutely nothing on the web explaining the error and only three references in Google so I thought I’d post my “answer”. More information on the differences between GET and POST.
