Subject Re: timeouts in CGI POST reading

    We've got some CGI scripts that accept file uploads but we also have
    users in lots of countries whose uploads don't always make it the
    first time... We need a way to signal the scripts to clean up and 
    abort the process rather than attempt to process only part of the data.

I believe your script should compare the number of bytes read from
stdin to the value of CONTENT_LENGTH.  If they differ, your
script should assume that the upload has failed.
