dots added to string after AJAX call returns

I am writing code that would enable dealing with mass of data that needs to be sent between client and server. The idea is to devide the data into chunks and send each chunk to the server using AJAX. The server has a Servlet that receives the call and caches the data. Here is a simplified version of the servlet code:

    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
        PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

and here is a simplified version of the the AJAX callback method:

    function gotTotalChunks()
        if (xmlhttp.readyState==4)
            var responseText = xmlhttp.responseText;
            if (responseText!="NONE") {
                alert("non NONE!")

The problem is that instead of receiving "NONE" I receive "NO..." and a "non NONE!" message!
What is going on? Could it be related to Locale (Hebrew)? I am using Google Chrome browser, and Tomcat web server.
