Wooooooohhh!! .. more than 16400 chars for an URL !! ..., thats more than 16K 
request send to the server ...
Maybe I'm wrong but, are you using the GET method ?, if so change it and use 
the PUT one and try again. As far as I know most of http protocol 
implementations have that kind of limitations on the GET method, but I could 
be wrong, I dont know enought about twisted to tell you.

Best regards
