Subject: Followup to virtual host/cache server problem report

Content-Type: text

Two points in relation to my report of a bad interaction between non-IP
virtual hosts and cache servers -

(1) The owner of the server I used as an example will want to fix the links to 
work around the problem reasonably soon ... the current state, allowing you to 
see the problem (to a limited extent, unless using a cache server where you can 
clean out the relevant documents from the cache to get comparative evidence) 
may only last for a few days before the links affected by the problems are 

(2) I should have stated more clearly that where I used lynx as an example
of an "old" browser that doesn't send a "Host:" header, that implies a version 
older than 2.5 (which does seem to send Host:).
