Subject Accept: weirdness with directory indexing
Date Mon, 23 Sep 1996 00:59:06 GMT

A request to a directory with an Accept: header containing no text types will
result in a directory listing regardless of whether an index.html or
index.whatever file exists.  I.e.

 telnet 80
 GET / HTTP/1.0
 Accept: image/gif

This could be classified as a security hole, I suppose.  I sorta stumbled on
this by accident which testing some other things.  I am running the most recent
CVS snapshot.
