Subject Possible bug in libapreq
Date Mon, 08 Jan 2007 06:56:13 GMT
Hey libapreq dev team,

I recently logged a bug for Firefox 2.0 which results in corrupted
file uploads over HTTPS (Firefox 2.0 Win32 only).  However, further
research seems indicate libapreq may be involved (I cannot
reproduce it outside libareq, for instance using PHP or the Perl CGI
module).  If you have a moment can you take a look and see what you
think?  Here is the Firefox bug report:

Thanks!  I use your excellent Apache::Request module extensively in my
company's core software (Apache 1.3.x, libapreq 1.33), and we're not
sure what to do about Firefox 2.0.

The bug appears to have to do with the way libapreq reads bytes off
the incoming socket.  With Firefox 2.0 Win32 HTTPS occasionally it
reads 0 bytes, and then drops out of the loop and discards up to 200K
from the file being uploaded.  It's all detailed out in the FF bug
