I don't know what that means but if it's explained it can be documented.

That's what you were getting, so nothing has changed. The IIS module is not reading the form submission necessary to do its job. I can't fix that because I don't have an explanation. Hundreds of servers of various versions do not exhibit that behavior, but a handful have reported that error and I don't know of any solution that has ever shown itself. If it works, it works, if not, it never seems to. It may be an obscure difference in configuration somewhere, but there isn't any known reason for it.

It's in the plans to add debugging log entries to the entire read loop but that's also a future change. However if you're willing to drop in a modified file, I can try and find some time this weekend to patch in some logging and do a build to try for gathering additional detail.

All errors from the SP are 500 errors.

I told you why it reports that and documented the way to address that, but changing the error reporting outcome doesn't change the error itself unfortunately.
