Subject Anyone been having problems with Content-length errors?
Date Mon, 10 Jun 1996 15:18:24 GMT
Has anyone been having any problems with errors like this:

[Mon Jun 10 10:02:31 1996] access to 
/afs/ failed for, reason: POST or PUT without Content-length:

Unfortunately, we are having this trouble... Have had it with 1.0.5, 
1.1b2, and 1.1b3 currently.

It is extremely unpredictable, and when it does happen on a particular 
machine (it doesn't seem to affect all, but is spreading) - it repeats 
for a bit, then it might work fine. Even worse, not all of the requests 
seem to be getting logged. This is happening on more than one machine as 

All of the requests that are having this error are returning "Bad 
Request" to the client. 

I put a sniffer on the segment/machine where the web server is running, 
and the request DID have a content-length header. 

I haven't taken a look yet at the code where this is being returned... If 
anyone else has had this intermittent problem, I'd appreciate some
