This was actually 0.8.9, yeah.

it's cosmetic (didn't prevent compilation) but it showed up without -Wall 
so it might be good to address.  It's just a single character change :)

Also, in playing around with server push (ugh! I was forced at gunpoint! 
I swear!) and found a problem with CGI script headers.  In server push you
send something like the following: (see

Content-type: multipart/x-mixed-replace; boundary=ThisRandomString 

Content-type: text/plain 

Data for the first object.  

Content-type: text/plain

Data for the second and last object.  


Under Apache, however, everything after the ; in the first Content-type 
gets nuked.  The page at Netscape has a note for users of NCSA's httpd to 
remove the space after the ; - that didn't work for Apache either.  It 
*does* work when the same information is sent either as an nph script or 
a .asis file (which is how I implemented it finally).  

Wow, I filed three bug reports in one day.  Wheee!  Now if I could only 
file three bug *fixes* in one day....
