We have code to handle footers in ChunkedInputStream. However,
this is the first time that I encounter footers in the wild,
so maybe that code is buggy. Could you please post a wire log,
including headers and content? Feel free to obfuscate any
sensitive information and cut the contents.

You can hack through the code of course. The socket's stream
is not accessible directly, because the ChunkedInputStream has
to parse the "chunked" encoding. Trailers are only allowed with
chunked encoding. If you have to hack through the code anyway,
you should rather fix what is broken than work around what is
already there.

Always funny to read these footers on mails sent to public
mailing lists...
