I'm seeing a problem with multi-part form submissions. I can recreate the problem on 012 and 013, it doesn't exist on 07. note sure about other versions.
If a form is submitted with an enctype of multipart/form-data any '+' characters in data enter into text and textarea controls is replaced with spaces. This is with Application/script-protect set to 'None' in web context admin.
This code will show the problem:
<cfform action="formtest.cfm" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="text" name="text" >
<input type="submit" name="test" value="Test">
Enter some text containing '' characters.
