I see that you are uploading a file, and I recently noticed that IE 5 Mac
does odd things when submitting an enctype="multipart/form-data" form.
Example: when passing a hidden field or radio button, it would at least add
white-space to the values. Didn't check to see what else it was doing, just
trimmed the variables and that solved my particular problem.

You can take that filefield out, change the enctype and see what happens,
which i 9blindly) bet will fix it - but then you still need to upload the
file. I guess I don't have an answer, just a first step in de-bugging...
