           Summary: mod_disk_cache with mod_proxy sends duplicate headers,
                    breaks Firefox
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.52
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_disk_cache
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: asf@element80.net


mod_disk_cache appears to be badly broken when used in combination with
mod_proxy (acting as a reverse proxy) and a Zope site.  The initial page fetch
to the relayed page works correctly, but subsequent cache hits return duplicated
headers.  This includes a second "Content-Encoding: gzip" header, which breaks
Mozilla Firefox.  The page renders as garbage because it cannot be
doubly-decompressed.

A forced refresh (shift-F5) returns a correct response but only for that one
request.

The problem vanishes if mod_disk_cache is swapped with mod_mem_cache, or if the
cache is disabled.

I do not think that Zope site in particular is related to this bug, although I
haven't been able to try other gzip-enabled sites behind my reverse proxy.


Here is a typical request and the incorrect response headers:

(I am using 2.0.51-2 Fedora Core 2 httpd packages, which include versions of
mod_cache and mod_disk_cache that are identical to those shipped with 2.0.52)
