I am working at a slight disadvantage here because I have neither
MSIE4.x or Stronghold code handy, but...

$ /usr/local/ssl/bin/telnet -z ssl 443
No SOCKS support
[SSL Connected - Cipher DES-CBC-MD5]
[SSL subject=/C=US/SP=Virginia/L=Springfield/O=Erol's Internet/

GET /cgi-bin/chuserid/chuserid.cgi HTTP/1.1
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sat, 04 Oct 1997 00:16:13 GMT
Server: Stronghold/2.1 Apache/1.2.4
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html
Connection closed by foreign host.

This works for non-CGI pages.

It appears like there is a bug in Stronghold when dealing with HTTP/1.1
and SSL chunked encoding and CGIs.  Hopefully this is enough for c2 to
track it down now that it can be replicated...

So it looks like it is not a problem in MSIE, just one of the joys of
being an early adoptor.
