We just ran into this bug on an Apache 2.0.55 combination of proxy and backend server. Our
backend 
server does not provide any content on a 302, resulting in the proxy server returning a 302
with 
content but content-length set to 0. 

I do not see what this has to do with cookie support. To me, sending a content-length header
that 
indicates a wrong content length is clearly broken, regardless of whether a 3xx error should
be handled 
by ProxyErrorOverride. This broken response confuses some browsers while using keepalive,
such as 
the antique but still widely used Firefox 1.0.7.

The invalid response also occurs if an ErrorDocument is defined. Specifying an ErrorDocument
of 0 
bytes results in the ErrorDocument being ignored (which is probably the sane way to handle
that). Being 
no workaround available, could this problem be fixed so that 302 at least works? Our system

administrator is not too wild about custom patches, so we've turned ProxyErrorOverride off
for now.
