FYI...  I just tried the setup above...

. It seems to work fine with IE5.5 (HTTP/1.1 enabled).

. I'm getting some flakiness with Netscape 4.7:

  o If I ask for index.html then the html displays fine but the gif 
    on that page is not displayed properly.  

  o If I ask for the gif directly it displays fine.

  o I suspect that this flakiness is related to the lack of a
    Content-Length header field (removed with a local code change),
    but I'm not sure.  Disabling keepalive didn't help surprisingly
    (maybe I screwed up somewhere).

    It would be nice to try it with the hypothetical Content-Length
    filter which constructs the proper Content-Length header field and
    see if that makes netscape happy again.  We need some
    infrastructure help before a Content-Length filter can be
