Actually my code was buggy.  I forgot to write the response header in
the resource handler code.

Moe: how about providing a fully functional canonical example (based
on yours)?  Such like:

(http:add-resource "/form-post"
 (lambda (req args)
   (let* ((form-fields (request->form-field-alist req))
          (file-input (alist-ref "file" form-fields string=?))
          (response (string-append
                      "You uploaded a file called "
                      (form-field:file-name file-input)
                      " which has a content type of "
                      (form-field:content-type file-input)
                      ".  The contents of this file are: "
                      (form-field:body file-input))))
        ;; save the form contents to a file (assuming a directory
        ;; /tmp/uploads exists)
          (make-pathname "/tmp/uploads" (form-field:file-name file-input))
          (lambda () (display (form-field:body file-input))))

        ;; write the response to the client
        (printf "Content-length: ~A\r\nContent-type: text/html\r\n\r\n~A"
              (string-length response) response))))

An example of web page for file uploading:

<form method="post" action="/form-post" enctype="multipart/form-data"
      <input type="file" name="file">
      <input type="submit">
