------- Additional Comments From siegfried.delwiche@sbs.be  2002-08-26 14:50 -------
I suggest to raise level to an higher level since this is really blocking (at 
least the content-length header).
A typical application not working anymore is the windows update tool

As far as I understand the protocol, it mentions 
14.13
The Content-Length entity-header field indicates the size of the entity-body, 
in decimal number of OCTETs, sent to the recipient or, in the case of the HEAD 
method, the size of the entity-body that would have been sent had the request 
been a GET. 

Windows update makes a HEAD request on the cab file that contains the updater 
program and gets in trouble since it does not receive a content length.

Hope this will be fixed soon.
