SOAP calls do not return full data

We have a number of scripts dating back to JIRA 4.2.x which use the SOAP interface. These scripts run into errors because SOAP is not returning full data. We get data chunks that are cut off at a power of 2 boundary. We have seen 8192 bytes being returned but also 16384 bytes.

Of course the result is no longer valid XML. GZIP compression is turned off for our instance.

Are there any reports on such a behavior for 5.0.x. These scripts ran absolutely stable under 4.2.x, 4.3.x, 4.4.x.

Although none of the replies really helped, the problem went away after the last upgrade.

JIRA Command Line Interface has been tested extensively on 5.x without problems. Try running something equivalent to your script using this for comparison. If it fails, it is some sort of server/environment issue.

It could be a result of the fix for this issue : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-24623.

Check this comment : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-24623?focusedCommentId=303412&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-303412 that says that this change is also applicable to SOAP and REST api.
