Subject [SPLAT] Invalid Content-Length 49, 49, 49

I recently added a 5 minute cron job to poll for unusual happenings,
log them (via output that cron then mails me) before a kill -15 and
complete restart of the server.

Here's one that looks like it's not mod_perl related (my usual achilles
heel).

etc..

this came from a tail -100 error_log.

Now, I don't know how much of the 38mb was filled with this message
but it was caught kinda red handed. In the past I've had problems with
error_logs growing too big for the filesystem so my cron job is there
to catch such problems.

The server is a 1.3b of a few weeks back, ~Nov 9th I think.
