The way I read the original question, there was some sort of problem
with the specific combination of static data and chunked transfer (e.g.
proxy servers saving the response properly in the cache).  I was trying to 
emphasize that there are valid reasons static data may be chunked so the
problem must be resolved with cache server and not the origin server.

Speaking of chunked transfer, PR 4716 is still open. That's the one
where buff.c makes an invalid chunk if a module tries a write larger
than 4095 bytes (area set aside for chunk header overflows).
