Please tell me AOL isn't trying to pull their crap again.

Can anyone confirm or deny this?

This is a serious problem......changing the AOL browser settings to
read uncompressed images does NOT always solve the problem, so
basically Apache 1.2 is dead in the water until they fix this problem.

It looks like it may have to do with Apache 1.2 reporting

SERVER_PROTOCOL	HTTP/1.1

instead of 

SERVER_PROTOCOL	HTTP/1.0

Does anyone have more info on this?
