mod_deflate does not properly format decompressed request content





------- Additional Comments From john@objectivelogic.com  2003-09-22 04:09 -------
Yes, I think that mod_deflate is rarely used for decompression of the REQUEST -- it's almost
always used for compression of the RESPONSE. And, the combination of mod_deflate and proxying
the request to a back-end server appears to be problematic.

I tried using mod_headers and the RequestHeader unset command to remove the Content-Encoding:
gzip and Content-Length: xxxx headers. The problem with this is that it causes mod_deflate
to be be nop-op'ed because he doesn't recognize that the incoming request is compressed without
the header.

I considered writing a filter to post-process mod_deflate's output and remove the headers,
but that won't work either, because the output is being streamed (as you point out), and the
headers will already have been written.
