WARNING : Invalid Chunk '***' ignored

We have a lot of WARNING entries in our app-system.log file for few months.

Examples of warning:

Mar 30, 2012 4:26:12 PM org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters processParameters
WARNING: Parameters: Invalid chunk '=01%2F07%2F2012' ignored.

Mar 30, 2012 4:43:25 PM org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Parameters processParameters
WARNING: Parameters: Invalid chunk '' ignored.

I found on the forum this answer for the same problem:

"Most likely, it means that your parameters (POST body or query-string) is ending with a '&' character (e.g. something like /mypage.jsp?foo=bar&).
Other patterns include "&=" or "&&", but these are less likely.
The warning is mostly harmless (except for the space in the log file), since Tomcat will continue to try and parse the parameters.
"

Does someone find some solutions to fix these WARNING ?

What should we do to be able to monitor them correctly ?

I know that those messages are mainly harmless but I would like to be able to find out how to correct them.

Thanks for your help,
