505 Error from tomcat 4.1.3

I have a war file. I have 2 versions of tomcat - 4.0.6 and 4.1.3. Same war file works fine in 4.0.6 but does not work in 4.1.3. My application is an applet-servlet application. I see the following error in the Java console. I do not see anything going to the server logs. Server returned HTTP response code: 505 for URL: http://localhost:8480/myApp/servlet/DispatcherServlet?key=abc&data=FFFFFFFFFF|<All>

- I tried to remove the '<All>' in the request and every thing works fine.
Does anyone know what the problem could be?

505 is for "HTTP version not supported"
so I am guessing it does not like the < and or > characters in the URL.
You could escape them using
