As far as I remember there are two problems with Netscape. The first was that
the data delivered had to exceed a certain minimum. The second is that the
win 3.1 version doesn't like the keptalive connection being dropped (it hangs
on the next fetch from that server).

The first I'm a bit hazy on. The second I'm sure of!

As I remember it the minimum amount of data included the headers. End of brain
dump ;-)
