[Mono-dev] Patch for HttpRequest.cs

The difference you missed (actually I missed this as well as I don't use
this constructor:) is that public HttpRequest(string filename, string url,
string queryString) of MS.NET seems to initialize QueryString to a
NameValueCollection using Encoding.Default as a hard coded encoding (when I
changed default code page in Control Panel the encoding used changed so this
is Encoding.Default for sure, and no configuration is used). When
HttpRequest is created from a HttpWorkerRequest query string is processed
only when QueryString property is accessed for the first time.
As query string is processed only once, changing HttpRequest.ContentEncoding
has effect only if you change (either programatically, in configuration or
using HTTP headers) it before accessing QueryString.
So query string parsing should be moved to a separate method that takes
encoding as a parameter. And call with Encoding.Default in the public
constructor and with HttpRequest.ContentEncoding in QueryString (and of
course only when it was not yet parsed).
